Jam Streusel Tartlets

This will be my first post. I must confess i am a little bit nervous. Why? Because I decided to blog in english and yes: english is a foreign language for me. So why do I blog in english? It’s just because that I can reach more people (my cousins who live in Australia for example :-)). I hope you will enjoy my blog, my recipes and the way i write.

Jam Streusel Tartlets

Now I want to welcome you to my blog, to my world. And I think there is no better way to welcome somebody than with cake: little buttery and flaky french tartlets filled with blackberry jam (of course you can use any jam or marmelade you like) an topped with almond streusel.
