First I must admit that these little tarts are one of my absolute favs. Thanks to my mother and all her pies, she use to make these jelly roll tarts from her leftover pie dough, and I couldn’t wait to get my hands on them. There’s nothing to making these little jewels, they are made from scraps of pie dough and jelly. How easy is that?
These tarts have become my kids favorite too. I almost always make extra pie dough just to have some left over for these tarts. I usually use jam, but also I have spread the dough with chopped apples, orange marmalade, and sometimes just sugar and cinnamon. Use your imagination. My next batch is going to be savory, hmmm, olive oil, cheese and rosemary.
No recipe needed here, just use pie dough and the filling of your choice.
This is so quick and easy; first roll out the pie dough

|The tarts are filled with jam and rolled up. Put in a 400 degree oven for about 15 – 18 minutes or until nicely browned.|
