I missed the September round up of the Sweet Punch as I was on vacation and too busy settling kids in school and getting over home sickness. Should try those Chocolate Almond Biscotti some day. Well,things brightened up eventually and here I am , all set to link this post to the October Punch - Jam Tarts by Ria.

Ria's recipes are never complicated ........therefore, baking tarts was way too easy and I have followed it to the T.


Flour - 115g ( thats about 1 Cup of sifted APFlour)
Butter - 60g chilled
Baking powder - 1/2tsp 
Water - 4 to 5 drops 
Strawberry Jam for the filling

  • Mix flour and baking powder together.
  • Add the butter and rub it with your fingertips till it resembles breadcrumbs.
  • Line the tart tins and fill 2/3 of the tart with jam. The crumbs bind together quite well while lining the tart pan.
  • Bake at 180 degrees for 15 mins or till done.
Tarts straight out of the oven .............

Note/Tip - I have used salted butter here, so the family comments say that the unsalted butter would've tasted better !!! will keep that in mind for sure :)
