Why I Love This Recipe

We found this recipe on the becel website. We have made them a few times and they have turned out good each time. You could also use the pastry we have used The perfect Pie Crust.


Ingredients You'll Need

Pastry
1 1/3 cups all-purpose flour
1/4 tsp salt
1/2 cups Becel margarine
3 tbsp ice water
1 tsp white vinegar

Filling
1/2 cups corn syrup
1/4 cups brown sugar
1 egg
2 tbsp Becel margarine, melted
1 tsp each vanilla and white vinegar
1/2 cups raisins, preferably sultanas


Directions

Preparation


1. Preheat oven to 375 F (190C). Spray using non-stick cooking spray, 10 preferably non-stick, muffin tin cups. In a medium bowl, stir flour with salt. Using your finger tips or pastry cutter, mix in Becel just until large crumbs begin to form. Whisk water with vinegar. While stirring flour mixture with a fork, gradually add just enough water mixture for dough to come together. Gather into a ball and place on a large piece of plastic wrap. Fold plastic wrap overtop, then use plastic to flatten dough into a disc. Seal with plastic wrap and refrigerate at least 30 minutes.


2. Meanwhile, whisk corn syrup with brown sugar, egg, vanilla, Becel, vanilla and vinegar. Roll out dough about ¼-inch (0.5 cm) thick. Then cut out 10 (4 to 4 1/2-inch/10 to 11-cm) circles, using a lightly flour glass or circle cutter. Press circles into muffin cups. Divide raisins among tart shells. Then fill with corn syrup mixture.


3. Bake until a deep golden, 22 to 25 minutes. Let stand a couple of minutes. Then remove to a rack to cool.
