Vegan Jam Tarts

This super quick and easy jam tarts recipe is perfect for a weekend treat (or anytime treat). They would also be great to make as a family with children because it's so simple and they can easily help out - just like I used to do with my grandma as a kid! You can swap the jam for any different flavour, or use several in one batch.

Makes 12 tarts

Tip: add some caster or icing sugar to the pastry for a sweeter dough

  • 170g plain flour
  • 85g dairy free butter
  • 1/2 tsp bicarbonate of soda
  • Cold water, as needed
  • Strawberry jam (or whatever flavour want)
  • Preheat oven to 180°c
  • Grease a cupcake/muffin baking tray
  • Add the flour, bicarbonate of soda and butter to a mixing bowl and rub together with your fingertips until it resembles breadcrumbs
  • Work in cold water as needed to create a smooth dough
  • Roll dough out on a floured surface
  • Using a cookie cutter, cut out 12 circles
  • Place the dough circles into the greased baking tray 
  • Add roughly tsp of jam to each tart (or as much as you want)
  • Bake for 15-20 minutes, until the pastry is golden brown
  • Enjoy!
