I used to make them regularly when my children were small, these days not so much. To use up last summer’s apples I was making today the last batch of apple pies for the freezer. I make most of my pies for a pie loving bachelor friend, and even though I have a stack of them already, by next summer there I will be pie-less. I had a clump of pastry left. Now you know what happens to clumps of leftover pastry, you put them in the fridge and next time you clean fridge you throw them in the trash. This time a muse hit me and I made it into jam tarts. No need to blind bake, nothing will happen if you bake the fully assembled tart. All you need for jam tarts is a good pastry.

leftover pie pastry
nuts, finely ground

Divide the leftover pastry and form them into little balls.
On a floured board roll them quite thin and place them in a muffin pan.
Add 1 tsp of jam and 1 Tbsp of nuts to each little tart.
Bake it at 400F until the pastry edges are nicely browned.
