From my new series, "Throwback Thursdays." I'm bringing over some of my favorite videos from my old channel for you every Thursday on top of my new videos each week. Enjoy!


Vegetable shortening 16 Tablespoon
All purpose flour 14 Ounce
Sugar 2 Tablespoon
Salt 1 Teaspoon
Ice cold milk 4 Tablespoon
Lemon juice 1/2 Teaspoon
Ice cold water 2 Tablespoon (give or take a few spoons)
Jam/Jelly/preserves 1/2 Cup (8 tbs)
For glaze:
Powder sugar 1/2 Cup (8 tbs)
Milk 1 Cup (16 tbs)
Sprinkles/Coarse colored sugar 1 Tablespoon



In a bowl, mix flour, sugar, salt and shortening. First cut the mixture with knife and then mix the contents together.

In another bowl, mix lemon juice with milk and add to the flour mixture. Gently mix the ingredients and add cold water if necessary. Wrap the dough with wax paper and pop in refrigerator for 30-45 minutes.


Sprinkle working surface with flour and roll the dough. Cut out into rectangles and spread jam over it and cover with another rectangle. Seal the ends, place in a baking dish lined with wax paper and pop it in oven.

Bake at 350 for 19-22 minutes.

Meanwhile, boil milk and add powdered sugar to it. Once the sugar is dissolved and the mixture turns into consistency of glaze, cool it down and add sprinkles. Mix well.

After cooling the tarts glaze them as shown in the video.


Serve and enjoy!
