Jam Pie with Easy Pie Crust

Jam Pie with Easy Pie Crust

These pie crust sweets are so easy and cute.
This is a recipe to make crusty pie crusts that was given to me by a British chef.

Ingredients

Pie crust:
Plain white flour
150 g
Margarine
75 g
Water
2 tablespoons
For the filling:
Jam (any kind you like)
as needed

Steps

1. Combine the flour and butter. Knead with your hands until flaky. Add water in small batches and continue to knead until as soft as your earlobes. Gather into a single clump and chill in the fridge for 30 minutes (please refer to Helpful Hints).
2. Take the batter out of the fridge. On a powdered workplace and a powdered rolling pin, roll out the batter until about 2mm thick. Cut into desired shapes.
3. Place a small amount of jam in the middle of the cut pie crust dough. A half of the crust will be used to sandwich, so don't put any jam on them.
4. Cover the dough with jam with the clean dough to make a sandwich. Close the ends with a fork and also poke some holes in the middle.
5. Line an oven dish with some parchment paper. Align the pies and bake in 180℃ oven for 10 minutes to finish!
6. You could also press in the pie crusts into muffin tins and fill with jam to bake.
