Jam tarts

Another great recipe for making with your children, jam tarts are simple and tasty. These tarts are made with a basic pastry, don’t worry about chilling the pastry before rolling out, just don’t over handle it.  Any jam will work, just use whatever you have in the fridge/cupboard.  This recipe will make approx 15 tarts depending on how thinly you roll out the pastry.

 

 

jam

 

Ingredients:

170g self raising flour

85g cold butter

3tbsp cold water

15 heaped tsp jam

 

Method:

Preheat the oven to 180c/350f/gas 4.

Chop the butter in to small cubes and place in a bowl with the flour. Using your hands rub the butter and flour together until it resembles bread crumbs.

Stir the water in one tbsp at a time to form a not too sticky dough.

On a lightly floured surface gently roll out the dough (not too thinly) and using a cutter cut out approx 15 circles.

Place the pastry circles in a shallow bun tin and add a heaped teaspoon of jam to each one (not too much jam or it will ooze everywhere)

Bake in the preheated oven for 20-30mins or until the pastry is golden brown.

Remove the tarts from the tin and leave to cool completely on a wire rack.
