1 Reviews

About the bake

These cream tea strawberry jam tarts are perfect to have with afternoon tea. Serve with whipped cream and a glass of Pimm's to make them a beautifully indulgent afternoon treat. These little tarts look great with their jam filled centres and some piped cream over the top. This recipe makes a batch of 12 and takes just under an hour. We've used shop bought jam for this recipe but if you want to make your own have a look at our Summer Strawberry Jam recipe.
