DIRECTIONS

  • To Make the Filling:.
  • Wash the currants and drain them.
  • Stir the sugar and butter together well. Mix in the egg and vanilla until well blended. Stir in the currants.
  • To Make the Pastry:.
  • Mix the flour and salt together.
  • Cut the lard into the flour and salt until the consistency is like crumbs. Gradually add enough of the water to make the dough hold together, and form it into a ball.
  • Roll out the dough and cut out with a round cookie cutter and fit into muffin tins (regular size, not mini).
  • To Assemble & Bake:.
  • Pre-heat oven to 375 degrees
  • Put a large spoonful (about 2 tablespoons) of the filling into each unbaked tart shell.
  • Bake @ 375 for 15 to 20 minutes, until bubbly and golden and crust is done. (Don't overbake - the filling should not be too brown or crispy.).
