Our favourite jam tart recipe

This is our favourite jam tart recipe - we hope your gorgeous girls love them. Let us know how they go... 

Ingredients - makes 12 tarts: 
175 g plain flour
80g butter
2 tbsp sugar
1/2 tsp salt
approx 50ml water
Jam (US:jelly) any flavour
Icing sugar to decorate

1. Mix together flour, salt, sugar and butter (cut into small pieces). Rub the mixture between your fingers till the mixture resembles large breadcrumbs.
2. Add the water (bit by bit) and knead the pastry gently, forming into a ball. Pop it in the fridge for about 1 hour.
3. Grease a 12 hole shallow tart tin. Roll out the pastry on a lightly floured surface (about 3-4 mm thick).
4. Using a large cup or pastry cutter, cut out circles and place into the tart tins.
5. Fill each tart with about 2 heaped tsps of jam.
6. Bake in a pre-heated over at 200C for about 15-20 mins.
7. Allow to cool then sprinkle with a little icing sugar.

Decoration ideas: 
Why not try cutting out small hearts from left over pastry and placing on top of the jam before cooking or sprinkle icing sugar through a heart shaped stencil once cooled.

Tarts should ideally be eaten by gorgeous girls whilst wearing our Queen of Hearts dress
