Baking is a passion in of mine and with the Jewish New Year approaching , I always bake a selection of biscuits/cookies for my family and friends. The jam tarts are a firm favourite that I grew up on, learning from my mother who passed on her recipe and now these are firm favourite for my family.

 

PASTRY

250g butter or baking margarine

3 cups flour

2 eggs

1tsp baking powder

1/4 tsp vanilla essence

1 tbsp cold water

2 tbsps castor sugar

Mix the sugar and butter together to form crumbs. Add all the dry ingredients plus the beaten egg mixed with water and vanilla.

Allow to form a soft dough.( Add a little more flour if needed)

Jam Tart

-Dough

-Jam of your choice-I usually use strawberry and apricot

– Heat oven to 180 C’

Rollout the dough thinly and cut into circular shapes using an 7-8 cm cookie cutter.

Reserve a little dough for the strips or rounds to decorate he tarts.

Place each round into a greased shallow cookie/biscuit tray.

Place approximately 1 tsp of jam onto each shape.

Using the remaining dough , roll out some little strips to crisscross the jam or cut out little shapes and place on to the jam.

Place into the oven and bake for 8-10 minutes. They should be just lightly golden in colour.

Allow to cool. Enjoy!

They are so delicious -dont be surprised if they disappear fast-😍😍😍
