  1. Preheat oven to 180°C. Grease a 12-hole standard muffin pan. Roll the pastry out slightly thinner on a lightly floured surface and cut out 12 x 5cm rounds (reserve pastry offcuts). Press the pastry circles into the muffin holes. Prick with a fork and sprinkle with castor sugar.
  2. Bake for about 10 minutes until the pastry is slightly golden and cooked through. Roll the leftover pastry out to a 4mm thickness and cut out mini pastry hearts.
  3. Fill each tart with strawberry jam and top with a pastry heart. Bake for about 8 minutes until the pastry hearts are cooked. Allow to cool before dusting with icing sugar.
