Butter Tarts

Butter Tarts created by 2Bleu

I make these butter tarts only at Christmas. They are small morsels of sweet sublime. I always use whole pecans--each tart gets its own crown of a whole pecan before baking.

ingredients

directions

  • Preheat oven to 450°F.
  • In a saucepan, melt butter on low; add all the remaining ingredients except the raisins and/or pecans.
  • Do not let it boil or the egg will cook.
  • Fill tart shells (I use ready-made ones) only 2/3 full and top with a whole pecan if desired.
  • Bake at 450°F for 8 minutes and then reduce temperature to 350°F for 15-20 minutes until delicately browned.

    I made these in mini muffin tins and they were so easy to make. I used pecans for the tops. These little treats taste somewhat like a pecan pie or also perhaps pecan waffles. These would look great on a party tray.
