Wow, I am thrilled to make these myself rather than buying store-made butter tarts/bars. I used a smaller (8x8) pan, so I baked them for 28 minutes. We don't like raisins, so I omitted them, but otherwise followed the recipe exactly, and they turned out sublime. "Bake Exchange" is an appropriate name: They are impressive and worthy of any family event or pot-luck function. Will certainly be making again!

This is an old recipe from Company's Coming 150 Delicious Squares. It is great if you want the taste but not the work of butter tarts. I use 1 tbsp of flour in filling, double the vanilla, add a pinch of cinnamon and use 1 cup of raisins, no nuts. I bake the crust 12 minutes and the filling 25 minutes, works great in my oven. Thicker crust if 8 inch pan used, double the recipe for a 9x13 pan.

Yum!!! These are absolutely delicious bars. I only put in 1 c of raisens and did not add any nuts. I baked them for 20 mins and they are perfect. Thank you for sharing a great recipe Winnipeg*Mel*.
