When prepping for a large event, what do you plan out for the dessert table? These jam tartlets are always on my list. The baskets can be made beforehand and stored until you make the meringue and fill the jam!

The jam in these tasty tartlets can be any kind that you like! I like to make mine with apricot, peach, or berry jam. If I’m making a big batch, I’ll do a portion with each kind, so that way my guests can pick their favorite.

All you need to make these tarts are simple pantry-staple ingredients, then the filling with just three ingredients.

What do I need to make the baskets?

  • egg yolks
  • egg
  • flour
  • sugar
  • unsalted butter
