There are many things in the world which are seriously under rated and Jam tarts is definitely one of them! These sweet treats are amazing and really quick to make!

12 tbsp Jam (any of your choice)
28g Caster Sugar
255g Plain flour
140g Butter
6tbsp Water

Firstly sieve the flour into a bowl and then add the butter. I then used my hands to rub the butter into the flour to make it turn into like breadcrumbs. I then pour the sugar into the bowl and blend together. I then apply the water one tablespoon at a time and then again using my hands, mix this all together until it forms a dough.
I then roll the dough out into a flat mixture about 5mm in thickness. I then cut the dough into 12 pieces and mould into circles and place in a cake tray making sure the bottom is completely pushed into the edges.

I repeat this 12 times and then add a tablespoon of jam to each pastry casing. I then place into the oven at 180 degrees for 20 minutes, keeping an eye on them. I would suggest taking them from the oven if the jam is bubbling as you do not want the sugar in the jam to overcook and burn.

      1. Yeah, stop using butter, its too much like hard work, Olivani is a great substitute and works straight from the fridge (cold). Don’t forget the pinch of salt, its a good raising agent. Teaspoon of sugar for sweet pastry. Bonne appetite 😀
