I love butter tarts, but when im in a hurry I will make this.
- 2 1⁄4 cups flour
- 3 tablespoons icing sugar
- 3⁄4 cup margarine
- 3 beaten eggs
- 2 cups brown sugar
- 1⁄2 cup melted butter
- 2 tablespoons vinegar
- 2 teaspoons vanilla
- 1⁄2 teaspoon lemon juice
- 1 1⁄2 cups raisins
- For the base cut together with pastry blender.
- Pat into a 9x 13 in pan and bake at 350 for 15 minutes.
- For the topping mix all ingredients together and pour over base.
- Bake at 350 for 20-25 minutes.
I made these in a 9" square pan so that the crust would be nice and thick. I had to cook them a little longer, but they came out great! Also, because the filling would be thicker, I cut the brown sugar to 1 cup. They were still plenty sweet.
I made these as part of my Christmas collection as I never had time to make butter tarts. I soaked my raisins in a little whiskey to plump them up first and I added 1/2 cup chopped pecans to the whole mixture. They turned out real good. A keeper recipe for sure!!
This was really sweet and really good. I've never had butter tarts before and these were delicious. My family enjoyed them a lot. Thanks for posting!
