    1. 1
      Pour boiling water over currants and let sit for 10 minutes. Drain. Place currants on paper towel to absorb extra water. Place about 1 teaspoon currants in each tart shell.
    2. 2
      Combine butter, cream, brown sugar, egg, vanilla, and lemon juice until mixed. Mixture will have bits of butter remaining and will looked curdled --- this is normal. Pour about 1 1/2 to 2 tablespoons of filling over currants in each tart.
    3. 3
      Bake at 400F for about 15 minutes.
    4. 4
      (If making 2-inch tarts use about 1/2 teaspoons of currants and 2 to 3 tsps. of filling per tart).

      The taste of these tarts are too die for!!!!!!!!! I cooked mine slightly less than 15 minutes because when I looked in the oven, some of the tart shells were burnt. Next time, I would probaly cook at a lower temperature for longer... Other than that, everything worked out great!! Thanks for this delish recipe Ty's Kitchen!
