Sweet Saturday # 19 – Jam tart recipe

To make 12 jam tarts you will need:

  • 100 g plain flour
  • 50 g margarine
  • 2 tbsp cold water
  • 6 tsp jam
  • 6 tsp lemon curd

  1. Preheat your oven to 200c gas mark 6
  2. To make the pastry rub in the margarine into the flour until it looks like breadcrumbs. Then slowly add the cold water, you may not need all of it. Mix with a round bladed knife until the pastry starts to clump together.
  3. Then form into a ball and roll out.
  4. Use a cutter slightly larger than the holes in the patty tin to cut 12 circles. You will have to re-roll the pastry to do this.
  5. Then line the 12 holes in the patty tin.
  6. Place a tea spoon of jam or lemon curd into each well and bake for 15 minutes until the pastry is golden on the edges.
  7. If you wish you can top up the jam tarts with extra jam once they have come out of the oven.
