20130419_200153For my recipe this week I knew I wanted to make something sweet that everyone could enjoy, so I chose jam and lemon curd tartlets.

The recipe I used was from a Be-Ro recipe book that my Mum has had for as long as I can remember! It’s pretty worn out but I always love the recipes and can’t bear to replace it! You can get an up-to-date version here though.

DSC02645We made a mistake with the first batch of pastry, adding too much water which resulted in a horrible, oddly elastic texture. The second time round worked perfectly though, so we cut the pastry into circles just a little larger than the holes in the tin and generously spooned in the strawberry jam and lemon curd.
