What can I say you need a really really quick snack that a se7en year old can easily make on their own and it looks so impressive! This is what we are aiming for:
Let’s Meet the Players:
Now you can make your own jam and you can make your own puff pastry from all natural ingredients for a professional event or you can have some staples that I absolutely always keep in our cupboard so we can whip this up in two ticks.
- A Jar of Jam
- A Roll of puff pastry
Let’s Play the Game:
Step 1: Gently roll out the pastry on a floury surface.
Step 2: Place a plate on your pastry and cut out a circle. Place your circle onto a greased baking tray.
Step 3: We added a dash of lemon juice into our jam – call it creative license or finesse! Then pop the jam onto the pastry and spread it around. Not quite to the edges.
Step 4: Pinch the edges over to make a pie rim.
Step 5: With the remaining pastry cut some thin strips and make a criss-cross pattern on top of the pie.
Step 6: Now at this stage their is a whole lot of pastry left over and a whole lot of eager siblings… and Valentines Day is looming so let’s quickly make some puff pastry jam hearts:
Every body stamps out two hearts a big one and a little one: stamp. stamp, stamp…
Place the bigger hearts onto the baking tray, dab a teaspoon of jam into the middle of the heart and place the little heart on top…
Step 7: Pop everything into the oven at 180 degrees Celsius for about 15 minutes, until it becomes golden brown.
And that’s it!
Well done Hood #3.
Oh and lets not forget our hearts!
Don’t they look yummy!
