After a recent conversation with my better half when I recently asked on Sunday what dessert he would like after Sunday dinner, he declared he really loved jam tarts as a kid so I went looking for recipe.
Little did I know but jam tarts are the simplest thing in the world to make and I make a lot of simple things. Once you knock up a little short crust party (or be super lazy and buy the frozen stuff) you simply put little shells in a cake tin as if you were making mince pies.
On top of the pastry you add a spoon full of the jam of your choice and bake for 15-20 minutes at 180 degrees c. I also added some little pastry cutter shaped hearts on top and a brush with egg wash to make then brown.
Simple; quick retro dessert.
