Very good tart. I suggest "plumping" the raisins in some boiling water for a few minutes before adding them to the syrup mixture. Another interesting thought, is to "toast" the walnuts, before using.(Not required, but might be different.)

How about the nutmeg, salt and eggs??? While I knew what to do here and it worked out fine, someone new to making butter tarts might not know. I suggest that you correct the recipe instructions, it's a shame some people may pass these up for lack of instruction. The filling is especially delicious!! My DH loved them and I will make them again. I had some bought tart shells to use up so finished of the recipe in them. Both the bought tarts shells and the home made are great.
