Childisdish Indulgence!

hello, sorry i haven't posted in a week i have been having some Internet issues! so to make up for it i will be posting today and tomorrow!
Today i would like to tell you about the simplest recipe to make a great sweet fix! jam tarts! last weekend me and some friends were wondering around Tesco and spotted some jus-roll pastry and we couldn't resist buying a pack and making jam tarts!!!
i know that this is supposed to be full of initiative recipes but i had to include this one to give you all a reminder of your childhood, well that's what they definitely do for me.
also though i do have to warn to as i forgot how completely moreish these wonderful creations are!
although i cheated and used jus-roll pastry as i was slightly short on time.
Jam Tarts
First of all roll out your pastry until approximately 3 mm thick.
then preheat your oven to 180C/356F/ Gas Mark 4
then grease a molded baking tray suitable to make the tarts. i think that quite small tarts work well and these can be made in a cupcake tray as well.
then cut out disks to of the pastry and mold into the holes in the tray. you can repeat this process until all the pastry is used or you can leave some extra for a top to the tarts however i like to leave them open.
then place the empty pastry cases into the oven for ten minutes.
when you remove from the oven fill with your filling i used strawberry jam to make mine. then you can add a lid at this stage if you want. then return the tray to the oven for another 10-15 minutes of until the pastry is golden brown.
