In my mind there is no better treat than a Jam Tart; got to be homemade though, I really don't like the ready made ones. As a child I would often beg my Nan to make them with me and I have fond memories of burning the roof of my mouth on the hot jam when eating the test tart.
The Jam Tarts above were the easiest baking I think I’ve ever done. I did cheat though. Ready made pastry is a saviour – pastry is something that always takes me ages to make and it’s nearly always too sticky to do anything with once I have made it. The ready made kind is just as good and comes in handy sheets that you can just unroll and cut out. I cut the tart shapes, popped them in the baking tray and added a teaspoon of strawberry jam to each, I then added a little pastry heart to the top to make them look super cute. Into the oven for 20- 25 mins and hey presto a moreish treat that has everyone smiling.
What’s your favourite treat to make?
