How To Make Easy Jam & Lemon Tarts

A simple recipe to make some yummy jam & lemon tarts. 

8 oz plain flour
Pinch of salt
4oz butter
2-3 tbsp cold water
Strawberry or any fruit jam or lemon curd.

Preheat the oven to 350°F/180°C/Gas 4.

Place the flour, butter and salt into a bowl, 
Rub the butter into the flour with your fingers until it goes in to breadcrumb texture.
Add the water to the mixture bit by bit until the dough binds together
Wrap the dough in Clingfilm and chill for around 30 minutes.

Unwrap the pastry onto a lightly floured work surface and roll . Using cutter or cup, cut circles from the pastry just slightly bigger than the holes in the prepared tart mould or baking tray. 
Place a heaped teaspoon of jam or lemon curd into the pastry .

Bake in the preheated oven for 15 mins on gas mark 4
