Jam Tarts

These little Jam Tarts were SO delicious... absolutely, incredibly delightful... and EASY to make!  Yay!  Who doesn't love that?

This recipe will make about 12-14 tarts... I highly recommend doubling the whole shebang and making enough to make everyone happy. :)

You'll first need to make this quick and super easy 15 Minute Puff pastry (add 1 hour for chillin' time!)

Grab this stuff:

1 C. flour
1/4 tsp. fine salt
10 Tbsp. unsalted HIGH QUALITY butter
1/3 C. ice water

Follow these instructions at "Dessert for Two"   15 minute Puff Pastry

After your Puff Pastry chills, grab the rest of your stuff:

Jam!  I used Polaner all fruit, and what I had on hand was "Orange" (which is basically Marmalade), and seedless Raspberry
1 large egg
1 Tbsp. Whipping Cream
1/3 C. Turbinado Sugar

Heat your oven to 375. 

Grab your favorite Jam!  I used Polaner all fruit, which doesn't have any added sugar.

For best results, I cut the (below) pastry dough into 4 sections, working one section at a time and keeping the remainder in the fridge.

Roll out your portion of dough gently, but thin, about 1/8 inch, or just a tad thicker.  Using a 2 inch cutter, cut 2 rounds per tart.  Cut out the center with a 1 inch cutter of any shape you desire. :)

Place the whole round portion on a parchment lined baking sheet.  Add about 2/3 tsp. Jam... (the amount below is maybe a wee bit too much. ;)  Live n learn.

Use your finger to dab a little water around the edge of the bottom portion, top with the next round, and place the cutout on top in an "offset" fashion.

Whisk the egg and cream in a small bowl, brush over pastries.  Sprinkle with Turbinado Sugar

Now these little beauties are ready for that hot oven...

Bake at 375 for 25 minutes.  Don't worry if some of the jam oozes out... it'll be fine. ;)  Let sit on baking sheet for 2 minutes, remove to rack and cool to room temperature.  Serve at room temperature with tea or coffee. ;)
