Recipe by Mantarae
This is my big sister, Cookie's, recipe which when she made them tasted like heaven! She gave me the recipe and I made them for the first time today and WOW they tasted as good as Cookie's and oh so so easy!! She uses already made rich pie dough from the freezer case at the supermarket, but since I live out of country where they don't have such things, I just made my regular Crisco pie crust recipe. I needed to make 1 and 1/2 times the amount to make enough for my rubbermaid mini-cupcake/tart pan, then I had a little dough left over for sprinkling sugar & cinnamon on it and baking, which was fine for my DH ;o) The new rubbermaid tart pan made it IMPOSSIBLE for the tarts to fall apart when getting them out of the pan. Wonderful. Try these rich tasting tarts, you won't be dissapointed!!
- 1⁄3 cup butter
- 1 cup brown sugar
- 2 tablespoons low-fat milk
- 1⁄2 cup raisins (can try using the flavored kind also)
- 1 egg
- 2 teaspoons vanilla
