Good Old Butter Tart

12 unsweetened tart shells
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup corn syrup
1 egg
2 tbsp of butter or margarine
2 tsp vanilla
1tsp white vinegar
pinch of salt
1/4 cup raisins (the best raisins you have)
1/8 cup of chopped walnuts

  1. Preheat oven to 450 F
  2. Place shells on a baking sheet and place raisins and walnuts in the bottom of each shell
  3. Whisk all remaining 7 ingredients until well mixed. mixture should be thick and gooey
  4. poor mixture evenly in the shells & bake for 12 minutes. DO NOT OVERBAKE!
  5. Let tarts cool to room temp, the filling will set. ENJOY! We tried ours at 1 in the morning. Couldn’t resist.

Interesting note: Used to prevent discoloration, sulfur dioxide is a common addition when processing dried fruit. The chemical destroys vitamin B-1 (a.k.a. thiamine)… If you want to get the most out of dried fruits, buy them organic and sulfur free. They may not look as pretty, but they are definitely the yummiest!!
