Why I Love This Recipe

Ingredients You'll Need

1 1/4 cups of flour
1/4 cup of brown sugar
1/2 cup of butter


2/3 cup of brown sugar
1/3 cup of white sugar
1/4 cup of butter
2 eggs
2 tbsps of flour
3/4 cup of raisins
1 tsp of lemon juice


Blend flour, sugar and butter until mixture resembles course meal. Press into a lightly greased 8x8 pan. Bake at 350*F for 10-15 minutes. Cool slightly.

Beat both sugars and butter until creamy. Add the eggs and continue beating until lightly fluffy. Mix the flour and raisins together,add the lemon juice. Fold the raisin mixture into the egg mixture. Spread filling over the base or spoon into tart shells. Bake until the filling is golden brown and set, approx. 25-30 minutes.


A few notes on this recipe. I use frozen tart shells and using this filling I can make around 30 butter tarts. If I am making tarts I like to add an extra 2-3 tbsps of butter to the filling, but thats just the way we like them. Both the squares and the tarts freeze well.
