Strawberry tart recipe


1 roll ready-made shortcrust pastry

1 large egg, lightly whisked with 5ml of water

100ml strawberry jam

handful fresh strawberries, sliced

icing sugar, for dusting


1. Cut the pastry into squares. Brush the edges of one square with a little beaten egg mixture.

2. Spread some strawberry jam over the pastry. Top with sliced strawberries.

3. Use flower or heart-shaped cookie cutters to cut two shapes out of another square of pastry.

4. Place the pastry with cut-out shapes over the pastry with the strawberry topping.

5. Use a fork to press the edges together to seal. Brush the top of the pastry with egg mixture. Repeat with the remaining pastry and filling.

6. Put the pastries onto a lined baking tray. Bake in a preheated oven at 180oC until the pastry is golden and crisp. Remove from the oven and dust with icing sugar.
