Jam tarts

I'd forgot just how fun jam tart making was until a recent session at Active Tots so we had a go at home today!
I haven't made me own pastry before, usually I buy the ready made rolls, so I had to find a recipe. 
I am shocked at how simple it is - butter, flour and water. We will be making all our pastry own from now on. 
Mix together the flour, butter and salt until fine like breadcrumbs. 
Add 3 tablespoons of water and three use your hands to mix. 
You can then leave it in the fridge for half an hour to help it roll better, but we are too impatient! 
At this stage I relaised I don't own a rolling pin!!! A quick scout through the toy box and I found a plastic carrot which worked just as well...
Cut out the circles and place into a greased pan.
Fill all the cases with jam and lemon curd, don't forget to regularly lick the spoon.
Pop into the oven for 15-20 minutes at 180degs and make sure doggie gets a good look at them cooking.
They are ridiculously hot when they come out from the oven, so I left them to cool for a couple hours and we will have them after our tea. Delish!
