Jam Tarts 2

Jam Tarts

by Northern Life

Makes 12 tarts

Tip: You can use any combination or flavour of jam for your tarts.


  • 200g plain flour
  • 100g unsalted butter, cold and cubed
  • 2 tbsp cold water
  • 12 tbsp of jam (use your favourite flavour or try lemon curd!)


  • Mixing bowl
  • Cupcake tray
  • Round cutter/water glass
  • Rolling pin
  • Cling film


  1. Preheat the oven to 180°C.
  2. In the mixing bowl, rub the butter into the flour using your fingertips until a crumb consistency is achieved, then add the cold water and bring together to form a ball of dough. Wrap the dough in cling film and place it in the freezer for 10 minutes.
  3. Roll the dough out on a lightly floured surface until it is 3mm thick and using your cutter or glass, cut into 12 circles big enough to line the cavities of the cupcake tray. As you cut your circles, if needed, squeeze your dough back into a ball, reroll and cut until you can make 12.
  4. Lightly press the circles of dough into the cupcake tray before placing a tbsp of jam into each one.
  5. Bake for 20-25 minutes until the pastry is just golden and the jam is bubbling.
  6. Leave the tarts in the cupcake tray to cool completely before lifting out and serving.
