Classic Jam Tarts

Ages: 3 years and up

These delicious holiday treats, whipped up from piecrust and seedless jam, are so easy to make, your little baker can do almost everything herself. She'll need grown-up assistance with just the oven - and doing the dishes, of course!


  • Cooking spray
  • 3-pack of disposable mini muffin pans
  • 1/4 cup seedless jam (we put 1/2 cup in our bottle for easier squeezing)
  • Plastic squeeze bottle (available in the candy-making aisle of craft stores)
  • 2-inch-diameter round cookie cutter or a cup of similar size
  • Unbaked piecrust (we used Pillsbury Refrigerated Pie Crusts)


  1. Heat the oven to 350˚. Generously grease the muffin pans. Then spoon the jam into the plastic squeeze bottle.
  2. Cut the dough into 36 circles. Press one circle into each cup of the muffin pans and pinch to fit.
  3. Squeeze a small amount of jam (roughly 1/4 teaspoon) into each cup. Bake the tarts until golden brown, about 15 minutes. Set the tarts on a rack to cool, about 45 minutes. Makes 36 tarts.
