STRAWBERRY JAM TARTS

My family loves Strawberry Tarts. So do I. The appealing colour is also beautiful and usually gets lots of oohs and aahs from my friends and guests.

It is not difficult to make them. Let's start with the crust.
For Crust, you will need
A stick of butter, melted
1 teaspoon sugar, fine

4 cups of whole strawberries, hulled
1 and half cup of warm water
1 and half cup of fine sugar
4 tablespoons of cornstarch
a pack of strawberry gelatine mixture
Red food colouring

Preheat oven to medium to high heat. Mix the sugar and butter untill they resemble crust. Pat them into the tart cases. Prick the bottom part of the case and bake it until they are light brown in colour. Cool if in room temperature. Place a halve strawberry in the centre of the case crust.

Boil water in a pan, add sugar, cornstarch. When the mixture becomes transparent, add the strawberry gelatin and stir till they are dissolved. Add a few drops of red colouring and pour over the crust with a halve strrawberry inside. Chill it and serve with whipped cream on the side.
