Butter Tarts
Prep time
Cook time
Total time
Serves: 12 tarts
  • ⅓ cup butter
  • 1 cup unpacked brown sugar
  • 2 tbsp cream
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • ½ cup raisins (optional)
  • 12 mini tart shells
  1. In a medium bowl, mix together all ingredients. Not everyone likes raisins so I either make one batch with and one without, or split the filling after it is mixed and then add raisins in to half.
  2. Place the tart shells on a large rimmed baking sheet. Pour spoonfuls of filling into the tart shells. If you get any on the baking sheet, wipe it up, as it may burn.
  3. Bake at 450°F for 8 minutes, then reduce to 350°F and bake until the pastry is lightly brown, about 5 minutes.
  4. Transfer to a cooling rack and allow to cool completely.
