This recipe is based on one I found taped into a used cookbook and tweaked to my liking. This is the closest I've come to the heaven that is my grandmother's butter tarts.

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.
  2. Beat eggs well; add sugar, corn syrup, and melted butter and beat until combined.
  3. Add currants, walnuts, vinegar, salt and vanilla extract; mix vigorously.
  4. Place circles of unbaked pie pastry into cornmeal-sprinkled muffin pans or silicone muffin cups. Paper cups work in a pinch as well.
  5. Fill the shells 3/4 full and bake until the pastry is lightly browned, approximately 20 minutes. For a runnier tart reduce baking time to 15-17 minutes.
