Making Jam Tarts

So I took the plunge and decided to have a go at pastry in my food processor. The children and I opted for ‘simple’ and chose Jam Tarts.

I found a simple Jam Tart recipe from Jamie Oliver’s site.

Here is BB giving you his Jamie Oliver impression!

The pastry required:

175 g plain flour
80g butter
2 tbsp sugar
1/2 tsp salt
approx 50ml water

(After wards I spoke to my Mum about it and she said she has never made pastry with sugar in before so I am assuming this can be optional.)

You will also need your favourite flavoured jam. We chose raspberry.

Pre-heat your oven to 200 degrees but if a fan oven reduce this to at least 180 degrees.

We measure out all the ingredients for the pastry and put in the food processor. We pulsed it until I could collect it into a smooth dough (a tip I learnt at the Cookery School) so it is not handled too much.

We then pulled the dough into a round shape and rolled it out to 5mm thickness.

We then cut out circles using a frilled edge cookie cutter (it was a larger size than I expected, so check the first one fits your tin before cutting them all.)

We then lined the tin with the pastry shapes, and finally filled with Jam.

Place in the oven and cook for 15 mins, but check them after ten.

The pastry should look golden brown and the jam bubbling.

Take them out and allow to cool. This takes quite a while, and just to note that the sticky Jam is piping hot and will burn tongues if consumed straight away. I really had to warn my little ones not to touch!

Once cooled enjoy the finished product.
