Butter Tarts

Yesterday for dessert I made some Butter Tarts. Now I really love them with raisins but alas I didn't have any...so I made them as Walnut Butter Tarts. It was so nice and easy to make them because I used the Pilsbury Rolled dough to make the tart shells. Don't they look nice on the pretty, blue, thrifted cake/goodie stand from last weekend? I had some minced meat left in a jar in the fridge from Christmas and some extra pastry so I made 3 mini tart shells too. Those are Marc's favourites.

This is the Recipe if you'd like to make them..

Ingredients:

1/2 cup corn syrup

1/2 cup brown sugar

1/4 cup butter

1 egg, slightly beaten

1 tsp vanilla

1/4 tsp salt

3/4 cup raisins or walnuts or pecans (or add raisins and nuts)

Pastry for double crust.

Method:

In heavy saucepan add all ingredients except raisins/nuts stirring on medium heat to melt. When all is mixed in well and melted add the raisins or walnuts.

Using 4" round biscuit cutter (or glass) cut out 9 rounds of pastry and line medium size muffin tin. Pour the filling using a measuring cup fill tart shells 2/3 full.

Bake at 400F for 10 minutes and lower to 350F and bake additional 5 minutes or until pastry is just beginning to brown. Do not overcook to keep the filling more runny than dry.

Cool in pan on rack. Remove and keep in airtight tan.

Yummy and simple too! Have a lovely day... Judi xoxo
