To make pastry, sift flour and salt into a bowl. Add 1/3 of the butter or

water to make an elastic dough. Roll out to an oblong on a lightly floured
board. Cut the remaining fat into small pieces. Dot 2/3 of the dough with
half the fat pieces. Bring up the uncovered dough third and fold in three
like an envelope. Turn the pastry so that the open end faces you and roll
out again into an oblong. Repeat with the remainig fat, fold and turn. Roll
out, fold and chill.

Roll out the dough until it is wafer thin. Cut out 12-15 circles to line a
fairly deep 3" muffin tin. Put a tsp of jam into each tin. Mix together all
the remaining filling ingredients, beating well. Spoon into the pastry tins
over the jam. Bake in a hot to very hot oven, 450 o - 475o F for 10 min.
