I’ve been cooking to keep warm. I can’t seem to get enough of the comfort foods when it’s so cold outside. I’ve also been trying to cook with what I have in the pantry and freezer so I am not running to the store so often .
I spotted this recipe for a simple Italian Jam Tart on the Food52 Website. I liked the sounds of it because I had everything I needed, except for the ice cream of course. The tart really is simple and the ingredients are what you already have on hand: butter, sugar, flour, almonds, and jam. Any jam will work, but I found some of my favorite fig jam in the fridge and it was delicious.
I also think this recipe would work in the summer using fresh smooshed up fruit. Raspberries and marionberries sound delectable. Until then, jam will have to do. It’s a great little recipe; easy, and it looks beautiful, baked in a fluted tart pan. I think it would make a great addition to any festive holiday event.

By the way, Salt and Straw Butter Roasted Chestnut ice cream was worth a trip to their shop, and in the frigid cold weather I didn't have to stand in the usual long lines. Win Win!
