  • 225g plain flour
  • 50g ground almonds
  • 1 orange, zest only, finely grated
  • 125g butter
  • 300g strawberry jam

To serve

  • 9 small fresh strawberries, washed and halved
  • 4 orange slices, quartered

  1. Sift the flour into a mixing bowl and stir in the almonds and orange zest. Using your fingertips, rub the butter into the dry ingredients then add enough cold water to mix to a soft pliable dough.
  2. Wrap the dough in baking parchment and chill for 20 minutes. Heat the oven to 180°C/160°C fan/Gas 4.
  3. Roll out the pastry on a lightly floured surface and use a pastry cutter to stamp out 16 rounds. Press them into 2 x 9-hole bun tins.
  4. Mix together the jam and Pimm’s then divide between the pastry cases. Cook for 20 minutes. Allow to cool on a wire rack.
  5. To serve, top each tart with half a fresh strawberry, an orange slice and a mint sprig.
