Ingredients

  • 350 g shortcrust pastry
  • 175 g strawberry jam
  • 100 g strawberries, hulled and finely chopped
  • Grated zest of 1 orange
  • 1 medium free-range egg, lightly beaten

Method

  1. 1

    Preheat the oven to 180°C, fan 160°C, gas 4. On a lightly floured surface, roll out the pastry to a thickness of 3mm, then cut out 12 rounds using a 7cm fluted cutter. Cut out 12 crowns from the remaining pastry using a sharp knife (an adults-only job).

  2. 2

    Gently press the pastry rounds into a 12-hole cupcake tin and set aside. In a bowl, mix together the jam, strawberries and orange zest. Spoon into the pastry rounds, being careful not to overfill, and top each with a pastry crown.

  3. 3

    Brush the crown tops with the beaten egg and bake in the oven for 15 minutes, until golden. Remove from the oven and cool slightly before serving.
