    Ingredients:

    Servings:

    Units: US | Metric

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Preheat the oven 375.
    2. 2
      Roll out the pastry on a lightly floured surface so it's slightly thinner than straight from the pack.
    3. 3
      Then cut out 18-20 rounds with a 3 inch fluted cutter, re-rolling the trimmings.
    4. 4
      Use the rounds to line two deep 12-hole tart tins (not muffin tins). If you only have a regular-sized, 12-hole tart tin you will be able to make a few more slightly shallower tarts.
    5. 5
      Beat the eggs in a large bowl and combine with the rest of the ingredients except the walnuts.
    6. 6
      Tip this mixture into a pan and stir continuously for 3-4 minutes until the butter melts, and the mixture bubbles and starts to thicken. It should be thick enough to coat the back of a wooden spoon. Don't overcook, and be sure to stir all the time as the mixture can easily burn.
    7. 7
      Remove from the heat and stir in the nuts.
    8. 8
      Spoon the filling into the unbaked tart shells so it's level with the pastry.
    9. 9
      Bake for 15-18 minutes until set and pale golden.
    10. 10
      Leave in the tin to cool for a few minutes before lifting out on to a wire rack.
    11. 11
      Serve warm or cold.

      Yum. These are very good. I cheated and used frozen tart shells and since the person I was making these for doesn't like raisins I omitted them and increased the quantity of nuts. Besides those changes I followed the recipe as written. Thanks for posting. Made for ZWT4
