Elegant Almond Jam Tarts...
The unique pan is a "Lift & Serve Single Squares" tart pan, by ChicagoMetallic bakeware company, that make this tart, not only elegant, but bite size, which has always fascinated me for some reason. I loved when my mother made tarts in a mini muffin pan when we were kids because she knew it would feel like they were just for us. However, now as a adult, I still find this size to be most convenient when it comes to serving or eating. I guess it goes back to my days in catering; you could sample more things without wasting a crumb :)
In addition to these sweet tarts, I can see making little quiches or fruit pies for our grandchildren to enjoy when we have our tea parties together or just to have in the freezer when I want a little bite of something.

Assemble the tarts as per the directions from King Arthur Flour (click on title to get to the link), then, do as I did--brew a cup of tea, put a couple on a pretty plate and imagine you're have your own tea party. Enjoy!
