Jam Tarts such a easy recipe to make. These cute little buttery biscuit base has a slightly tart jam filling which almost sets as it bakes. I enjoyed many many of these.
The pastry is a fool proof recipe and gives you the buttery and slightly crumbly crust..Since the jam is the star of this recipe, try to use good quality jam. I used blackcurrant preserve in this and i loved it. You can use strawberry, raspberry or any berry jam, even apricots preserves will be great too.
Hope you will give this a try and let me know how it turns out for you..
