    Frank Butcher's Note:

    Butter Tarts, a wonderful Canadian dessert, sort of like pecan pie without nuts, if you can imagine such a thing. This (old) Canadian recipe should do the trick!

      Preheat oven to 375°F.

      Prepare pastry dough; cut in circles and line 3-inch tart pans with pastry circles.
    3. 3
      Combine balance of ingredients.
    4. 4
      Spoon mixture into unbaked pastry lined pans, filling each no more than 2/3 full (if the filling bubbles over it makes one heck of a mess!). Bake for 20 minutes or until filling has cooked and pastry is golden.
    5. 5
      Notes: This can be made without the raisins or nuts, but they are very plain.
    6. 6
      I generally make these with a combination of nuts and raisins.

      Craisins can be substituted for the raisins.

      Being a Canadian living in Colorado, I make these for my friends here and they rave about them. Whenever I make a batch, I make sure I have extra recipe cards with me. This recipe is the best! It comes from the Five Roses cookbook, and the baking directions I've always used are: Bake in a hot oven (450*) for 8 minutes, reduce temperature to 350* and bake 15 to 20 minutes longer or until pastry is delicately brown.

      Watch out! This recipe is missing a wet ingredient somewhere. It turns out more like a whipped butter frosting than butter tart filling. This is the 5 Roses Recipe I found on their website: Filling: 2 eggs, 1 cup (250 mL) brown sugar, ½ tsp (2 mL) salt, 1 tbsp (15 mL) cider vinegar, ½ cup (125 mL) maple syrup, ? cup (75 mL) butter, melted, ¾ cup (175 mL) walnut, chopped, ½ cup (125 mL) currants, ½ cup (125 mL) raisins >http://www.fiveroses.ca/OurRecipes/RecipeDetail/4887?categoryId=234
