As the nursery rhyme says 'The Queen of Hearts she made some tarts all on a Summers day' well it may not be Summer and I'm not royalty but I can sure make a tart or two. I have a lovely jar of last years homemade strawberry jam open and what better way to enjoy it than in a simple jam tart. As Valentines Day is upon us I thought I would add a little romance to my tarts, and put my new heart shaped cutter to use. The cutter was included with the January issue of Love Baking Cupcakes & Sweet Treats Magazine, which I discovered whilst browsing my newsagents earlier this month.
I made my sweet pastry tarts using:-
- plain flour
- caster sugar
- an egg
- strawberry jam
Twelve minutes later in a hot oven and wonderful Strawberry Jam Tarts. Just perfect with a cup of tea in one of my favourite china cup and saucers, feet up and relax browsing my magazine. Most enjoyable!
