Marie-Terese always has pastry in the freezer ready because when I come to visit I always leave an extra batch. This proves especially useful in case someone gets a craving for butter tarts. Our Daddy Ernie loved butter tarts and baking these delicious little tarts reminds us of him. I hope you enjoy these as much as we do.
1/2 cup white sugar
1/3 cup butter - melted
1 tsp. vanilla
1/3 cup raisins or currants (do not add the raisins to the sugar mixture)
Remove from pans immediately or the tarts will stick and you will not be able to get them out.
Serve with a nice cup of tea.
