Its the holidays and wondering how to keep your kids occupied? Well, why not ask them to join you in the kitchen??? I know, I know, it might look a herculean task.... No, Iam not asking you to make them do a whole dinner. Do something together which is easy and fun for the kids. Like these Jam tarts which are so easy to make and kids will get a satisfaction that they accomplished something on their own. It is very very easy to make and they can click pics and brag to their friends when school reopens.
All Purpose flour: 500 grams
Salt: a pinch
Butter: 200 grams
cold water: 1/4 cup
Jam: your choice.... strawberry/ mango/ orange/ Mixed Fruit
In a mixing bowl, Mix the butter, salt and flour till it resembles bread crumbs.
Now add the butter and add watter little by little to make the dough.
Wrap the dough in a cling film and refrigerate for 15 to 30 minutes.
Preheat oven 180C
Take out the dough and with the help of a rolling pin, roll out the pastry to 1/2 cm thickness.
With the tart mould cut out the pastry and again roll slightly and press one disc into each hole.
Spoon a heaped tsp of orange jam/mango jam/strawberry jam to each pastry case.
Bake for 15 minutes or till the edges of tarts are brown.
Cool completely before consuming as jam gets real hot.
