1    Roll vegan puff pastry (defrosted)

Apricot & Strawberry jam*


*You can use any jam you like. I used strawberry and apricot jam because that’s what I had.

Extra: Almond milk and icing sugar

  1. Preheat oven to 200°C. Line 2 baking trays with baking paper.
  2. Flour your workspace and rolling pin. Roll out your puff pastry as thin as possible but not too thin.
  3. Use a round cookie cutter or the top of a glass and cut circles out of your puff pastry.
  4. Use a teaspoon to scoop a dollop of jam in the center of each circle.
  5. Use your finger to smear almond milk around your circle so that the sides can stick together. Fold your circle in a half moon shape.
  6. Take a fork and press the sides to seal it. Dip the fork in almond milk each time you press.
  7. Place your tarts on the baking tray and brush each tart with a little bit of almond milk.
  8. Bake for 10 minutes. Let the tarts cool on baking trays for 5 minutes. Transfer to cooling rack to cool completely.

*Tip: Make sure you seal your tarts good otherwise the jam will ooze out while baking your tarts.

Garnish your tarts with a dusting of icing sugar. Display your jam tarts or store in an airtight container.
