A buttery shortcrust pastry is used to lines tart tins, which are then filled with a mixture of butter, golden syrup, brown sugar, raisins, eggs and nutmeg. Delicious dessert idea or for an afternoon treat.
I had lost my mom's recipe for butter tarts and this one seemed similar in ingredients from what I remembered... however the temp settings must be too high or too long because I followed the recipe exactly and have an oven thermometer and they came out as crispy critters... did the 2nd batch at 400 for only about 12 minutes and although not quite so "burnt" flavoring was blaw... - 21 Nov 2002 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
Bake these at 400 watching after 10 min and you will have the absolute best Butter tarts.I tried baking at 350 the first time but it wasn't hot enough. Makes enough for 3 1/2 doz bought tart shells. - 13 Dec 2008 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
