Butter Tart Recipe

These butter tarts are a simple, sweet and buttery dessert from my mom that I usually make at Christmas time. They are great with a cup of coffee.

If you don't like raisins, leave them out and add a few more pecans, or walnuts if you prefer.

Ingredients

  • 1 c. brown sugar
  • 1/4 c. butter or margarine, room temperature or slightly melted
  • 1 egg
  • 1/3 c. raisins
  • 1/2 c. chopped walnuts or pecans

Instructions

  1. Cream butter, sugar and egg. Beat until smooth.
  2. Add chopped nuts and raisin and stir in well.
  3. Place teaspoonfuls or small scoops into prepared butter tart shells.
  4. Place on paper-lined baking sheet and bake in 400º F oven for 8 minutes. Reduce temperature to 350º F for 5-8 minutes more, or until the centres are set and the shells are golden brown.
  5. Remove from oven and cool on wire rack.
