Making jam tarts reminds me a lot of my childhood memories of making jam tarts with my mom’s leftover pie crust dough. Did someone else do this when they were growing up or was it just me? Jam tart is an easy-to-make dessert that’s perfect for a party. They can also be served as afternoon tea with the girls (I call it afternoon tea, but I usually drink prosecco).
This jam tart recipe uses a reliable pie crust recipe. Her grandmother allowed me to copy some recipes she needed to know when I first left her house, and I’ve been using it ever since. I love the jam tarts as proof that they are so simple and absolutely ridiculous.
If you’ve seen my pie recipes, you’ll know that this is the only way I make pie crusts. This pie crust recipe can be used from apple pie to chicken and mushroom pie and everything in between. For use in savory dishes, simply subtract the caster sugar.
How many calories are in Jam Tart?
Each jam tart is about 116 calories, but this may vary depending on the brand of jam you use. For the tart, I used homemade strawberry jam. If you’re looking for a low-calorie jam, why not try a low-sugar jam or a sugar-free jam? Both of these choices are much lower in calories and still give you a very tasty meal.
