Queen of Hearts Jam Tarts


This recipe is from guest chef, Jenn Thorson~


1 jar raspberry or strawberry jam
4-inch heart-shaped tart pans
Pastry ingredients
Each batch makes two large tarts
1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1/4 cup packed brown sugar
2/3 cup margarine or butter, softened
1 egg
Heat oven to 400 degrees F.
Grease tart pans lightly with margarine.
Mix all ingredients for Cookie Tart Pastry until dough forms.
Press firmly, evenly and thickly against bottom and side of tart pan (If the dough is too thin, it will be hard to remove the baked item from the pan and it’ll, um, break your heart).
Poke with fork thoroughly to prevent dough from puffing.
Bake 15 to 20 minutes or until light brown;
Remove from tart pan carefully.
Fill with raspberry jam and enjoy!

PS– I got my tart pans at TJ Maxx and Marshalls, though many kitchen stores will have them. Happy Valentine’s Day, everybody!
