Queen of hearts' jam tarts - A post by Aesop.

In an attempt to get Aesop into a bit more writing, I thought I would tempt him with two things he enjoys - food and fame. Who ever said bribing kids with food wasn't a good plan clearly doesn't have a 7 year old : P
Aesop wrote this on paper and I typed it out for him - typing will be the next step in the plan!

Today I made jam tarts.
I found the recipe in my Kids Cooking book and wanted to make them.

Here's how I did it:

First I gathered all the ingredients.
Then I got a muffin tray and cut some circles in pastry.

And then I baked them.

And finally I poured some jam into them.

They were delicious.
I shared them with Mum, Dad, Aunty Holly, Uncle Ben and Otto.

I would love to make them again.


  1. Wowee Aesop! Just looking at those photos is making me hungry for some more jam tarts. What will you make next?
