Mix all the ingredients quickly with your fingertips, until you have a dough that you will wrap in cling film and leave to rest in the fridge for half an hour. After the necessary time has elapsed, remove from the fridge and with the help of a rolling pin, roll out the pastry on a floured surface to obtain a 4 mm thick sheet. about, line a tart pan and remove the excess pastry along the edges. Prick the base with the rebi of a fork then cover with a layer of cherry jam (or whatever flavor you prefer), then from the piece of leftover shortcrust pastry, help yourself with a wheel to get some strips that you will arrange on the jam diagonally, then help yourself with the tines of the fork to seal the pastry and bake your jam tart at 180 ° for 40 minutes.
