Today I thought I'd share an old family recipe that I absolutely love!
Although these would be good at anytime of year, we usually only make them at Christmas.
It is a tart recipe handed down from my great-grandmother that combines raspberry jam with an almond flavoured topping, so so good! My girls love them too!
The instructions I worked from aren't as detailed since Grannie remembered recipes and didn't need to write them down! I've added my measurements in brackets.
Line small(mini)tart tins with pie pastery of your choice.
Add a small dollop of raspberry jam to each(about 1/2 tsp.)
Then top with the following mixture:
3 oz. fruit sugar( I used about 1/2 cup icing sugar)
3oz butter,softened ( I used about 1/3 to 1/2 cup butter)
3 oz ground rice flour ( I used about 1/2 cup rice flour)
1/2 tsp. almond extract( I like a stronger almond flavour so would add a bit more next time)
Mix these ingredients together well. Put about 1 tablespoon of this mixture on top of jam. Bake at 425 for 15 to 20 minutes until golden brown.
