Jam Tarts with Alison Aimes
Who tried it: Alison Aimes, author of Besting the Billionaire
Why she likes it:
There is little I enjoy more than settling in with a great book, a mug of coffee, and a jam tart. Luckily, jam tarts are easy to whip up, if you use a few shortcuts. For the crust, any pie crust recipe will do (my favorite is America’s Test Kitchen), but to cut down on kitchen time, store-bought crust works great. Store-bought crust tends to be thick, so roll it out a bit so it’s thinner.
You can use a tart pan, but I use a mini-muffin pan or just a regular muffin pan, depending on how big I want to make the tarts. Cut the pie dough into circles that are a little bigger than the hole they need to fit in. (Four inches is about right for a regular muffin pan.)
For the filling, you can use any type of jam. I love using lemon curd—again, either store-bought or homemade works.
Grease the pan and press the dough circles gently into the molds. Fill with a tablespoon or so of jam, but do not fill to the top. If you have any leftover dough, cut out little shapes and place on top of the jam. Bake at 350 degrees for 15-20 minutes. Let cool completely before eating! I’ve burned my tongue being too impatient.
Check out Besting the Billionaire by Alison Aimes now!
Billionaire Alexander Kazankov always wins. But he didn’t count on high-heeled, drop-dead sexy Lily Bennett getting in the way of his latest deal. She’s a distraction he doesn’t need, not when he’s so close to making things right for his family.
Lily may walk and talk like a Southern piece of fluff, but she’s been underestimated before. She’s determined to succeed—and no entitled, arrogant asshole, especially the too-gorgeous-for-his-own-good-kind, is going to get in her way.
Oil meet water. Gasoline meet spark. It’s all out war as these two enemies go toe-to-toe in an ugly, take no prisoners battle to prove they’re the right choice to be CEO of the same company. All too soon playing dirty in the boardroom leads to playing even dirtier in the dark. It’s destined to end in personal and professional disaster. So why the hell can’t they stop?
Alison Aimes is the award-winning author of the contemporary romance Billionaires’ Revenge series as well as the sci fi romance series the Condemned. A romance junkie with a PhD in Modern History, she’s an all-over-the-map kind of woman whose always had a love for dramatic stories and great books, no matter the era. Now, she’s creating her own stories full of intrigue and passion, but always with a happy-ever-after ending. She lives in Maryland with her husband, two kids, and her dog. When not in front of the computer, she can be found hanging with family and friends, hiking, trying to turn herself into a pretzel through yoga, listening to a fabulous TED talk, or, last but not least, sitting on the couch imagining her characters’ next great adventures.
