Jammy Jobs

These are called Maids of Honour in the real world, but my kids like to call them jammy jobs and the name has stuck. They are little jam tarts with a light sponge topping. Very morish, so much so that I have to double the recipe every time!

6 oz short crust pastry (I make my own but you could always use shop bought)
2oz margarine or butter
2 oz caster sugar
2 oz self raising flour
1 egg

Roll out pastry thinly cutting rounds using a 3" cutter and line 16-18 pastry tins.
Place a little jam in each.
Cream margarine and sugar,.
Fold in beaten egg and flour.
Place a small spoonful of mixture into each case sealing in the jam.
Bake in a moderately hot oven 200c 400f Gas 6 for 15-20 minutes.
