  3. Sprinkle a few currants into each shell.
  4. Fill tart shells with mixture 2/3 full.
  5. Bake in a hot oven 400 degrees f.
  6. for 8 minutes.
  7. Reduce heat and continue to bake 12-25 minutes 325 degrees.
  8. Or bake just until crust is golden.
  9. Note;;; I usually bake these at 350 degrees for 15- 18 minutes, I always watch as they go quickly at the end.
  10. I still like them a bit runny.
