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).
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.
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.
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.
Line an oven dish with some parchment paper. Align the pies and bake in 180℃ oven for 10 minutes to finish!
You could also press in the pie crusts into muffin tins and fill with jam to bake.
Story Behind this Recipe
A recipe that I was taught by a British gentlemen. These cute and crusty pies are really easy to make, so you won't need to worry about any unexpected visits by a friend.
Please refer to Recipe ID: 2112048 to make the pie crust dough. If you add too much jam, it will run out when baked and burn! I used fairly large cookie cutters.
