Prep 5 mins
Cook 15 mins
I got and tried this recipe a couple months ago and it sounded and little odd to me at first but I tried it and they we eaten by my Family in just a few days! Also if you don't have the cookie cutter it calls for you can just use a very little juice glass, thats what i used and it turned out great :)
- 1⁄4 teaspoon salt
- 1 1⁄3 cups all-purpose flour
- 1⁄3 cup room temp butter
- 5 tablespoons water
- 1⁄2 cup jam
- Rub in the flour, salt and butter with your fingers until the mixture looks like bread crumbs.
- Pour about 2 Tablespoons water in the mixture.
- Bring the mixture together in a ball.
- The bowl will be crumb free if done correct.
- Pre heat oven to 400°F.
- Roll out the ball of dough flat, make sure you don't roll to thin.
- Cut the dough into small circles (this is made for a small muffin pan not a normal one) and put into pan.
- Spoon in jam (it should only be about half way full of jam).
- Bake for 15mins (Its may be less time or more depending on your oven).
- Let cool for about 3mins.
The idea is great. The recipe needs some editing. The ingredients list says "5 Tbsp water", the directions say "2 Tbsp". The first batch came out fine; my second batch of dough didn't quite work for some reason. Any suggestions for getting the circles into the pan without making a mess would be appreciated. In honor of Pi Day (celebrated 3.14 at 1:59 pm by pie-baking nerds everywhere), I made the first batch with strawberry jam. For the second batch, I baked the shells only, then filled with a melted chocolate confection improvised off the top of my head. The empty shells need to be baked as long as the tarts themselves.
I made these and used the boughten rolled pie crust and they are delicious. I used raspberry jam made from green tomatoes. Found that recipe here also. Ummm Good! Next time I will make the dough myself. was in a hurry this time.
