Preparation steps

1.
Mix the flour with the sugar and salt in a mixing bowl. Rub in the butter until the mixture resembles breadcrumbs. Stir in the water and quickly combine to form a dough. Wrap in cling film and chill for 30 minutes.
2.

Heat the oven to 350°. Grease 2 1/2" loose-based deep heart tins.

3.

Roll out the dough on a floured surface and line the tins. Chill for 10 minutes.

4.
Line the dough cases with non-stick baking paper and fill with rice or dried beans. Bake for 10 minutes until the base is dry. Remove the paper and beans and fill the tarts with jam.
5.
Bake for a further 8 minutes. Cool in the tins for a few minutes, then place on a wire rack to cool completely.
