Sadly none of these survived the feeding frenzy and made it to the picture stage, so you’ll just have to take my word for it, they were delicious. They also are very easy to make, so long as you have the Fraughan Jam already made (see this recipe for Fraughan Jam).
The other recipe you’ll need is the recipe for the basic and simple short crust pastry which I made some time ago.
Recipe: Fraughan Jam Tarts
Summary: An easy and very tasty tart
- 1 batch of pre-prepared short-crust pastry (see linked recipe above)
- 1 batch of pre-prepared fraughan jam
- Some butter for greasing trays
- Pre-heat the oven to 200°C
- Lightly grease two 12-cup baking trays
- Roll out your pastry until it is around 1cm thick
- Cut the pastry into between 18 and 24 rounds
- Place the rounds in the greased tart tray
- Prick the bottom of the tarts with a fork and part bake them for 3-5 minutes
- Remove the tarts and allow to cool slightly
- Fill each tart with at least a tablespoon of fraughan jam
- Be careful not to overfill the tarts as the jam will bubble and spill over the edges as it cooks
- Bake the filled tarts for between 12-18 minutes until the crust is golden brown
- Remove from the heat allow to cool in the tray for 2-3 minutes before moving them to a baking tray to cool completely
Be careful, the hot jam is stick and can cause bad burns
You can use any kind of jam you like.
