Jam tarts

    These are so simple to make that my 3 year old daughter can do most of the work. Make sure not to roll the pastry too thin, and don't put too much jam in.

    1. Add flour, salt, sugar and butter to a food processor and mix until coarse crumbs are formed. Add the water very gradually and continue to blend until a ball is formed. Chill the pastry for 30 minutes, or so.
    2. Grease 2 shallow tart trays and roll out the pastry on a floured surface until it is thin. Cut out rounds with a cutter and place into tart tins.
    3. Bake at 180 C / Gas 4 for 10 minutes. Remove and spoon a dessertspoonful of jam per round, and put back in the oven for an additional 10 minutes.
    4. Cool on a wire rack.

    My son and I thought we'd make jam tarts. The recipe is easy enough...but WHERE is the oven temperature???!!  -  25 Oct 2011

    Good easy recipe but I would say there is too much salt, would have been ok with just a pinch of salt.  -  09 Aug 2011

    Thank you! The whole family love these, whenever I turn my head another one disappears. I set my oven at gas 4, and I had to leave them in for an extra 5 minutes.  -  23 Oct 2011
