The Flavours of Canada,
edited by Anita Stewart

Slightly runny and totally addictive, butter tarts are a Canadian classic. They are an essential element of prairie cooking.

1 cup raisins
24 3-inch unbaked tart shells
2 eggs
1 cup packed brown sugar
1 cup corn syrup
1/2 cup unsalted butter, softened
1 1/2 tsp vanilla
1/4 tsp salt

1.   Line muffin tins with tart shells and divide raisins evenly among shells.
2.   In a bowl, lightly beat together eggs, brown sugar, corn syrup, butter, vanilla and salt. Pour over raisins to 3/4  full.
3.   Bake in a preheated 425˚F oven until set, about 15 minutes. Cool on a wire rack.

Yield  24 tarts
