Little Treats

Jam Tarts

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.

  1. Oh this brings back memories, I loved making jam tarts as a kidlet! My first baking memory and something I still love to knock up today is rock cakes, which in no way resemble rocks (unless my Mum is the one making them!)

  2. Ohhh they look so cute and delicious! I haven't seen them being made like that but I'm pretty sure I will give it a try soon!!
