Butter tart recipe

Apr 21, 2015 - 12 comments

Pas­try:
1½ cups all-purpose flour
Pinch of salt
¼ cup cold but­ter, cubed
¼ cup cold lard or veg­etable short­en­ing, cubed
I large egg yolk
I tsp white vine­gar
¼ cup ice-cold water

Fill­ing:
½ cup packed dark brown sugar
½ cup maple or golden corn syrup
1 large egg
1 tsp vanilla
1 tsp white vine­gar or lemon juice
2 tbsp soft­ened but­ter
Pinch of salt
¼ to ½ cup raisins

Pre­heat oven to 375F.

For pas­try, com­bine flour and salt in large bowl. Using old-fashioned wire pas­try cut­ter or two knives, cut in but­ter and lard until mix­ture resem­bles coarse crumbs. Using fork, stir in egg yolk, vine­gar and water until dough holds together. Wrap; refrig­er­ate at least 1 hour.

For fill­ing, vig­or­ously whisk together all ingre­di­ents except raisins in medium bowl until com­bined. (This can be done in food processor.)

Roll out dough on lightly floured sur­face until fairly but not too thin. Using 4-inch/10 cm round cookie cut­ter or empty 28-oz/796-mL can, cut into 12 rounds to fit 3-inch/8 cm cups of muf­fin tin. Divide raisins between each pas­try shell; spoon on filling.

Bake in oven 20 to 25 min­utes or until pas­try is golden brown. Cool in pan about 2 min­utes. Run knife or small metal spat­ula around edge of each tart; trans­fer to wire rack to cool completely.

Makes 12 but­ter tarts.

Oh and PS and BTW - Please be careful with the percs. My doc. They'll get a grip on you if you're not careful. Just an FYI from one who cares...

You'll love it too kat!

That's exactly what I'm afraid of happening Kat. The label says to take 1 or 2 every 4 hours as needed. I've only been taking 1 at a time, cause I have heard how easily one can become addicted. And there's no refills on them, so once they're done, they're gone. And I know that I don't have to take them all either. Thanks for caring kat xoxo
