Welcome to my Air fryer Strawberry Jam Tarts.
I remember the first time I got hooked on jam tarts. I must have been about eight years old and I had discovered them via the local bakery. Growing up in England the pastry and the bakery was a regular thing.
You would go and have sausage rolls and they would still be warm and with a napkin you would walk around the town eating it and think it was the best thing ever!
This of course was before obesity and I reckon if people got just the one sausage roll like they did back then, compared to when they buy five now, that people would still be able to enjoy them without a BIG weight gain!
The other thing I used to always have would be the sweet pastry treats. My favourite was a large jam tart and it would have cream on top and be delicious.
But as I have had a lot of sweet treats lately in the world of testing out this recipe series I have decided that for once in my life I MUST give up the cream!
If you’re not going through a fat phase like I am, then I would recommend adding the cream as it does add some special!!!
