Christmas Cookies: Butter Tarts

These are particularly easy if you can buy ready-made pie crust. If you can’t, use the Never Fail Pie Crust published earlier in this blog. You can freeze what you don’t use for later. Easy easy easy.

Butter Tarts

Preheat oven to 375 F/190 C.

Cream together:

1 Tablespoon butter
1 cup brown sugar


2 beaten eggs
1 large cup currants, sultanas or raisins
2 teaspoons vanilla extract

Line patty or tart tins with pie crust (cut with cookie cutter to fit) and drop in enough mixture to nearly fill. Small tart tins work fine, and make a great one-bite sized tart.

Bake 10 – 12 minutes,
