    Ingredients for making the Raisin Butter Tart


    1. 1
      Instructions for making the Rich Pie Pastry. Firstl, put the dry ingredients together - flour, salt and baking powder in a big bowl. Mix the dry ingredients well with a whisk. Next, beat the egg in a measuring cup. Add vinegar and fill the measuring cup to the 3/4 cup mark with water. Add to the flour mixture and mix well. Finally, add in the shortening and mix with your hands until the dough comes together. The dough has to be chilled in the refrigerator for at least 20 minutes.This dough can also be frozen for later use.This dough recipe can be used to make pie, egg custard, chicken pot pie, etc. Roll out the pastry dough on a floured surface to 1/8 inches in thickness. Cut out the pastry using a 3 inches diameter cutting ring. Excess dough can be gathered together and roll out again. Line the muffin tins with the cut out pastry dough. The pastry dough should be evenly and gently pressed against the wall of the muffin tins.

      Boy, howdy, did I like these tarts! Being originally from the south, I've always loved pecan pie. The filling on this was great! and adding the raisins was inspired. I put all the ingredients for the shells into my food processor and let it do much of the work! First time my pie crust was worth eating!lol Thnx for sharing your recipe, SummerBud. Made for PAC Spring 2010. You've been adopted!
