    Chef Dee's Note:

    Melt in your mouth butter tarts, oh sooo good !! The method for baking is unusual, but will prevent the filling from boiling over.

    My Private Note

    Ingredients:

    Servings:

    Units: US | Metric

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Line tart tins with pastry. Sprinkle 6-8 currants into each tart shell.
    2. 2
      Let butter cool to room temp, then add the remaining ingredients. Stir until smooth.
    3. 3
      Spoon into unbaked tart shells, filling about 2/3 full.
    4. 4
      Bake at 200F for 15 min, then without taking the tarts out, turn the oven to 350°F Bake another 10-15 min, until they start to brown. This method will prevent them from boiling over.
    5. 5
      Note: I use Tenderflake lard and make the pastry using the instructions on the box, chilling the dough before rolling. Roll it a little thicker than for pie pastry, and use a little extra flour.

      I didn't use your particular ingredients, but I did use your baking method. I was a little sceptical at first, but went ahead anyway. *Beautiful* Every tart was perfect. No spill-overs, and that's a big plus in my book. Only problem......I now have to make double the mixture because I can finally fill the tarts to the top with that buttery goo. Gee.....how will I ever survive :) Thanks so much for sharing your method.

      This is very much like my Mom's recipe. I thought they were great. My tart shells must of been a bit smaller, so I made a good 5 dozen. Your idea for preventing them from boiling over really works. I will probably be make my tarts that way from now on. Thanks for the recipe.
