Butter Tarts


I think they're making a comeback

Ingredients
2 cups 500 ml   Flour
4 tbsp 60 ml   Sugar
1 cup 250 ml   Butter or margerine
4   Eggs
1 cup 250 ml   Brown Sugar
0.5 tsp 2 ml   Baking Powder
1.5 tsp 7 ml   Vanilla
1 cup 250 ml   Oats
0.5 cup 125 ml   Raisins
0.5 cup 125 ml   Nuts (walnuts, or pecans preferably), chopped.
 
1. Mix together the flour and the sugar and cut in the margerine using a pastry blender, until its in small 'pea' sized pieces. Roll the dough out fairly thin, and spread/press the dough into small greased muffin tins or tart tins and bake in a 350 F degree oven for 12 minutes.

2. Beat the eggs until frothy. Stir in the brown sugar, baking powder, vanilla, oatmeal, raisins and nuts.

3. Pour the mixture into the semi-baked tart shells and bake for 20 minutes.
