Almond and Jam Tart, Christmas, dessert, Flour, Jamie Oliver, Pastry, Plastic wrap, Sydney, Teaspoon, Zest (ingredient)
My sister (Jade) made her version of these tarts after seeing Jamie Oliver make them on one of his 30 minute meals TV program. She ended up making these on Christmas eve – it was so hot here in Sydney and we were all dripping with sweat but we all couldn’t resist scoffing down this tasty little treat!
