12 Days Of Christmas – Day Three

Jam and fruit tarts!

This is something I like to make around Christmas time because I don’t like mince pies so I think this is a good substitute. It’s super easy and quick and they taste pretty good.

You will need:

– Puff Pastry
– Jam (I used strawberry and raspberry)
– Frozen or fresh fruit (I used strawberry and raspberry)
– Muffin trays
– Egg
– Something circular to cut circles with (one larger and one smaller)
– Fork
– Brush

Step 1: Preheat your oven to 200°c and take out 2 sheets of puff pastry and allow to thaw.

Step 2: Using your circle, lightly mark out where you’re going to cut. Make sure you maximize the space!

Step 3: Cut it out!

Step 4: Spray your trays with cooking spray and line the tin with your larger circles.

Step 5: Place a teaspoon of jam into each tart. Don’t put too much in because it will bubble over while cooking if you do.

Step 6: Take your fruit and place it on top of the jam. Again, don’t fill it too much otherwise it will end in disaster.

Step 7: Beat your egg in a small glass or cup with a fork until the yolk and white is mixed. Using a brush, lightly glaze the smaller circles.

Step 8: Place them on top of your tarts.

Step 9: Cook for 20-25 minutes or until the tops are golden.

Step 10: Remove from the oven and enjoy!
