This weekend I did a ton of baking and cooking. Some great recipes are coming your way. Big thank you to Brenda Popoff from Benito for sending me her recipe for Butter Tarts!
3 eggs, well beaten
1 cup packed brown sugar
½ cup walnuts
1 tsp. vanilla
¼ cup butter, melted
⅔ cup currants or raisins
Preheat oven to 450°F. Make tart shells out of pie crust.
For the filling, beat eggs then add brown sugar, walnuts, vanilla, and butter; mix well. Divide currants or raisins evenly between tart shells. Pour filling over currants or raisins.
Bake for 8 minutes at 450°F. Then reduce temperature to 350°F and bake until tarts are brown. Makes 20 tarts shells.
