READY IN: 30mins
Recipe by ScrappieDoo

A perfect buttery sweet filling makes these irresistable! Passed down by my great Aunt who was French Canadian. She cooked with approximate measures, so these amounts may vary to taste.

I've tried a hundred different versions of butter tart filling and this one is the BEST. Not jelly, not too gooey. Just PERFECT!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees Fahrenheit.

  3. Add the vanilla, vinegar and lemon juice.
  4. Beat the eggs lightly and add to mixture; add corn syrup.
  5. Sprinkle 5 or 6 raisins (or walnuts or pecans) into the bottom of each tart shell. These tarts are also delicious without anything in them.
