Jam tarts with filo pastry recipe

Sweeten up your day with this jam tarts with filo pastry recipe. Fun to make with all the family, these dainty filo tartlets are infused with orange. They’re made with Streamline reduced-sugar jam, so everyone can be extra generous with their spoonfuls!


Our Top tip! While preparing the second layer of pastry squares, place an empty bun tin on top of the one you’ve started filling. It will hold the cases in shape while you’re working.


Ingredients (serves 16)

  • 10g unsalted butter, melted
  • 4 sheets filo pastry
  • Zest of 1 orange
  • 16tbsp Streamline Jam, choose from your favourite flavours
  • Cling film or a damp tea towel



1.Preheat the oven to 180°C /160°C fan/ Gas 4.

2.Brush a filo sheet with half the butter; cover the other three sheets with cling film or a damp tea towel so they don’t dry out. Sprinkle half the orange zest over, spreading out with the pastry brush, then lay another filo sheet on top.

3. With the long edge of the pastry closest to you, cut in half from top to bottom, cut each piece in half again so you have four equal strips, then cut each strip into four so you have 16 squares. Gently press the squares into a holes of a bun tin.

4. Repeat the process with the two remaining pastry sheets, placing a second square on top of the first at a slight angle.

5. Fill each case with one tablespoon of Streamline Jam. Don’t over fill them. Bake for 15 minutes until the cases are golden then remove from the oven and set aside until the jam has set and cooled.
