Simple recipe, goes down well with the kids!!

NB. Add your sugar after you have rubbed in the flour, before adding the water!

very simple recipe but the jart shells were very bland, a little claggy and floury tasting on my first attempt. Second time around i changed the amount of sugar to 50g and this improved them immensely. Using a very good quality, tart lemon curd is my family's favourite combination, the contrast between the pastry and the lemon curd is just delicious. :)

We are wayyy to sugaraddicted and you have no idea what it does to our bodies

I chose this recipe as it looked simple enough and did work well. But when I came to actually make the jam tarts I found that the ingredient of the sugar wasn't mentioned at all in the method! I'm a bit of a novice and didn't really know what to do! In the end I put it into the dough and it seemed fine, it just threw me when I was trying to make them quickly one morning.
