I thought it would be fun this year to perhaps share some of our favorite food recipes. Who knows what we might come up with. I know I would love to share your favorites and I am sure the others would too. Please either leave them in a comment or email me and I will post them.
To start it off I am posting a favorite at our household - Butter Tarts. I make the really small ones (so it doesn't look like you eat as many - LOL) My family doesn't think it is Christmas without them and neither does our neighbour!
|Butter Tart Filling:
1 cup corn syrup
1 cup sugar
2 tblsp butter melted
1 tsp vanilla
1 cup raisings and or pecans (optional)
|Short Crust Pastry:
1 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon salt1 tablespoon granulated white sugar
1/2 cup unsalted butter, chilled, and cut into 1 inch (2.54 cm) pieces
1/8 to 1/4 cup ice water
Beat eggs lightly with fork in bowl. Add corn syrup, sugar, melted butter and vanilla. Stir until blended. Spoon raisins into tart shells, pour in filling, two-thirds full. Bake at 350 for 20-25 minutes or just until set. Freezes well. makes 24 tarts (large) - 48 small
You can cheat and use store bought crust and they still taste as good. LOL
