Jam tarts are a popular favourite but the pastry isn't always easy to master when it comes to gluten free. Once you have the pastry down you can fill those cases with whichever jam you prefer for fabulous jammy tarts! Our top tip is to use egg in the pastry, it keeps it that bit softer, so it doesn't got rock solid so fast.

Method

1. Sift together the flour, salt and xanthan gum.

2. Rub in the soya spread to make a breadcrumb consistency.

3. Mix in the egg yolk and sugar.

4. With a round ended knife, gradually mix in the water until you reach a nice doughy consistency. You might need more or less than the 2 tbsp specified.

5. Wrap in cling film and chill in the fridge for 15 mins or so before use.

6. Grease a muffin tin, roll out the dough and cut with a largish cookie cutter, push the rounds into the muffin tin to make pastry cases, add a tsp of jam or lemon curd to each case and bake for 20 mins on gas mark 5.

Soya spread can be replaced with normal margarine if dairy free isn't required
