Jelly Tart Recipe

I love pie crust. It's one of the easiest pastry doughs you can make. 

I also love jelly. This recipe is so good, and so easy! 

Pie crust:
1 3/4 cups of flour
1/2 tsp salt
3 tablespoons oil
3 tablespoons water

Jelly or jam of your choice! I used a delicious apricot jam.

Preheat the oven to 375. Mix flour and salt until combined. Add oil and mix until the dough resembles peas.

Add water and mix until dough comes together. Do not overmix! Hot tip: pie crust becomes hard and very difficult to roll out if you over-handle it. Be gentle!

Roll out half the pie crust between two sheets of wax paper into an 8" circle.

Carefully transfer the circle to an ungreased baking sheet and spread with the jelly. 

Roll out the rest of the pie crust and slice into strips using the blunt edge of a butter knife.

Carefully lay the strips across the tart. Go ahead and weave them if you're feeling fancy, but I just laid one half across and the other direction across on top.

Sprinkle with sugar and slide into the oven.

Bake for 25 minutes or until the pastry is golden and flaky.
