Strawberries jam sablé breton tart … the best jam tart I’ve ever eaten.
In fact, I had the opportunity to prepare it more than once … and it never disappointed me.
A crumbly pastry, but also crunchy on the outside and soft on the inside …
I chose to garnish it with strawberry jam, but you can use the jam or marmalade you prefer.
Sablé breton tart is a simple dessert not only to prepare… ..but also to transport …… in fact it could be called a “tarte de voayage”.
For its slightly rustic appearance, I recommend preparing the Sablé breton tart for an outdoor picnic or a trip to the countryside.
One flaw: it finishes immediately.
