I went so far as to steal an old cook book my mother NEVER used – sorry Mom. The Five Roses Cookbook. Printed in Winnipeg Manitoba – back when we actually made stuff in our own country. I absolutely love this tart recipe and it is SO easy.
1 Pastry Recipe
1 egg beaten
1/3 cup butter
1 cup brown sugar
1 tblsp milk
1/2 cup raisans, currants or chopped pecans (I just use pecans or walnuts)
1 tsp vanilla
Prepare pasty recipe, roll 1/8 inch thick and cut into 4″ rounds. Press into medium size tart pans.
Mix all ingredients together, fill tart shells 2/3 full. Bake in a hot oven 450 degrees 8 minutes, reduce temperature to 350 degrees and bake 15 to 20 minutes longer until pastry is delicately brown.
If using store bought frozen tart shells I bake at 350 for 15 – 20 minutes just watching for the right brownness on the tart shells.
Makes 12 – 15 tarts.
