What say you – currants or no currants? Or do you prefer raisins?

Prized Butter Tarts | NBWI.ca
  • 1/3 cup butter
  • 1 cup brown sugar, sifted
  • 2 Tbsp milk or cream
  • 1/2 cup currants
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • Pastry dough

Roll out dough to 1/8″ thickness and cut circles to line pastry tins.

Mix ingredients together and place spoonfuls of the mixture into the lined tins.

Bake in a hot oven at 450F for 8 minutes, then reduce temperature to 350F and bake until pastry is delicately browned.

To make taffy tarts, use the same recipe with the currants omitted.
