Treacle Tarts

Simple & traditional tarts made with Jus-Rol shortcrust pastry sheets. This is sure to be a hit every time!

Ingredients
  • 1 x 320g Jus-Rol Shortcrust pastry sheet
  • 100g fresh, white breadcrumbs
  • 350g golden syrup
  • ½ lemon, zest and juice
Techniques Used
  • How to Roll Shortcrust Pastry
Method
  1. Preheat the oven to 200C/180C (fan)/Gas 6
  2. Unroll the pastry and using a 7.5cm/3″ cutter, cut out 12 discs and line the base of a muffin tray.
  3. Add the syrup to a small pan and heat gently. Stir in the breadcrumbs, lemon zest and juice before setting aside to cool.
  4. Spoon the mixture into the tart cases, so they are half full. For a traditional look, decorate the top of each tart with pastry strips cut from the trimmings and form into a lattice design.
  5. Bake for 15 minutes, until the pastry is golden brown.
Tips
  • Take the pastry out of the fridge and remove from the packaging approximately 10 minutes before you are ready to use it, as it will be easier to work with.
  • Don’t overfill the pastry cases as the filling will spill over the edges.
  • The tarts are delicious served warm with custard!
