Delicious, simply delicious tarts, beautiful presentation and easy to make. They turned out perfectly. They were flavourful and tender, just wonderful. I used my own warm spice mix and golden raisins and tart apples. I will definitely make these again, next time I will double the recipe. Perfect for company, very elegant.
