These were quickly made using the left over pastry from the crosses on my English Hot Cross Buns.

A quick and delicious tea time treat.

pinch of salt
3 oz
butter
1 tsp
caster sugar (superfine)
1
egg - beaten

FILLING

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Preheat oven to 200C. Sift the flour, salt and sugar into a bowl and cut in the butter until it resembles fine breadcrumbs. Add the beaten egg and combine until it forms a dough. Chill in the fridge for 30 minutes.
2
Roll pastry out on a lightly floured surface quite thinly and cut into rounds. Place the rounds in a tartlet tray (bun tray).
3
Put a maximum of 1 1/2 tsp of jam of your choice into the tart cases. This pastry shrinks so do not fill to the brim. And put in the oven for approximately 15 minutes.
4
Remove form the oven and remove from the tartlet tray immediately and place on a wire rack. Allow to cool before eating as the jam will be exceedingly hot.
