  1. Unroll the pastry and use an 8cm round cutter to cut out 12 rounds. Use small heart cutters to stamp out little pastry hearts from the trimmings. Use the rounds to line the holes of a nonstick 12-hole fairy cake tin, then dot 2 tsp jam and 1 tsp peanut butter into each tart. Decorate with the pastry hearts. Chill for at least 30 mins.
  2. Preheat the oven to gas 6, 200°C, fan 180°C. Bake the tarts for 10-12 mins until the pastry is golden and the jam bubbling. Carefully lift the tarts from the tin and leave to cool on a wire rack. Dust with a little icing sugar to decorate, if you like.

Tip: These tarts can be made ahead. Follow the method up to the end of step 1, the tarts can then be chilled for up to 24 hrs.
