Prepare pastry dough; cut in circles and line 3-inch tart pans with pastry circles.
Combine balance of ingredients.
Spoon mixture into unbaked pastry lined pans, filling each no more than 2/3 full (if the filling bubbles over it makes one heck of a mess!). Bake for 20 minutes or until filling has cooked and pastry is golden.
Notes: This can be made without the raisins or nuts, but they are very plain.
I generally make these with a combination of nuts and raisins.
Craisins can be substituted for the raisins.
For Jam Tarts: Line tart pan cups with pastry.
Fill cups 1/2 full with your choice of jam.
Bake at 400°F for 20 minutes or until pastry is golden.
