Jam Tart

Hey guys! I’m back with a new recipe, a childhood favorite one: Jam Tart! I wanted to recreate my mom’s recipe and I could not be prouder. Here is my take on it.

I grew up having this treat. Mom used to bake it every once in a while but we used to wait impatiently for it! It was full of flavors and yumminess. So this time I made it and she was so proud of me! And I couldn’t be happier.

I admit it’s not one of my typical healthiest recipes, but who cares! I enjoyed every bite. The whole family was so happy having it and this is what matters the most to me.
