Jam Hearts, Living in Just one Mind

Miniature+Hearts+Jam=Happy Maryam

When craving jam tarts, I decided on these mini-jam tarts. The pastry was very easy to make and easy to work with. I used my mini cupcake pan to make them, and used a fluted cookie cutter to cut the pastry to shape (choose one size up from the one that just fits the pan, so you get a decent edge to fill with jam).

After filling with jam, being careful not to overfill as it will bubble over during baking; 2/3 of a teaspoon should be okay, I topped with a heart/star made from left over pastry (hearts=apple and blueberry, stars=raspberry).

voila

Mmmm…. yummy
