For the tarts:

1 cup flour

1/3 cup butter

2 tablespoons water

1/4 teaspoon salt

Spread some scrumptious cheer to people who have been kind to you lately.

Ask an adult to preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Cream the flour and butter together. Add the water and salt, and blend well. Roll the dough into small balls, and press each one into a muffin tin cup with your fingers.

Bake about ten minutes or until the tart crust is a light, golden brown. When the crust has cooled, spoon fruit preserves into each until the tarts are full. Sprinkle nuts and powdered sugar on top.

Draw and cut out heart shapes, and tape them onto toothpicks. Write messages for the people you want to give the tarts to, such as "Thanks for being so nice." They'll be glad they were.
