Apple Tarts

A very easy recipe for children to help with, they'll enjoy rolling out the pastry - it doesn't need to be straight, wobbly is great.  Older children can peel the apples.  Once you've sliced the apple, children can have a great time making patterns with the apple slices on the pastry, painting the pastry with jam and sprinkling the sugar over.

These are lovely for a special breakfast, as a pudding or to take on picnics.  You can make mini versions for canapes. Eat them hot or cold.
