Les Petits Chefs make mini jam crumble tarts

Kids make mini jam crumble tarts on eatlivetravelwrite.comThis week, the Petits Chefs made a mini version of a recipe I developed recently (Strawberry Jam Crumble Tart), mostly because I wanted to see what it would look like in mini form. But also because I know that boys + pastry = busy hands (it’s hard to find recipes where EVERYONE is busy at the same time that we can pull off in an hour!).

So, the inspiration was this:

I just gave them the pastry (we made it in the food processor) and the cutter and off they went!

We had four different flavours of jams and the boys made sure to keep them separate on the tray (so they’d know what flavour was which)…

Kids make mini jam crumble tarts on eatlivetravelwrite.comYou know you want to make these for yourself, right? Here’s how…

How to make mini jam crumble tarts (from this recipe):

1. Your pastry is going to make roughly 20 small tarts using a 3-inch (8cm) fluted cookie cutter.

2. You’ll place the pastry rounds in a regular muffin tin and gently press the pastry down in the tins to form a cup.

3. Place about 2 teaspoons of jam in the centre of each pastry cup, it won’t look like a lot but it will be enough.

4. Use a fluid (looser) jam like Bonne Maman’s Intense line. It will spread nicely and fill the pastry cups.

5. Divide the crumble evenly between the cups. Again you don’t need to completely cover the jam.

Et voilà!

Just baked: mini jam crumble tarts on eatlivetravelwrite.comThe Petits Chefs will take a break next week as it’s Thanksgiving in Canada but our guest chef programme starts up on October 21 so tune in that week to see who the boys get to work with this term!

Disclosure: Bonne Maman Canada provided me with jams to develop recipes and for demos at Canada’s Baking and Sweets Show this month for which I am being compensated. I was not asked to work with the product beyond those obligations but it’s my jam of choice and it works well in baking!
