This is a quintessentially Canadian creation that the Amish in Ontario have adopted as their own. Doesn't this look tasty? This is a recipe from an Amish woman in the town of Aylmer.
HOMEMADE BUTTER TARTS
4 large eggs
½ cup firmly packed brown sugar
2 cups dark corn syrup
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1 teaspoon white vinegar
10 tablespoons butter, softened
2 cups raisins, walnuts, or coconut
Preheat the oven to 350°F.Roll out the pastry dough on a lightly floured surface to form a 12-inch diameter circle about 1 /8 inch thick. Use glass to cut out rounds and put into muffin tins. Cut off an excess overhang.
In a large mixing bowl, combine the brown sugar, eggs, corn syrup, vanilla, vinegar, and butter until the mixture is creamy and thoroughly mixed.
Spoon the optional ingredients into the bottom of the unfilled crusts. Pour the combined mixture into the pastry crusts until three-quarters full. Bake until the crusts are golden and the filling is firm
For people who are not use to doing much baking , it would be nice to have baking oven temps and amount of time to bake tarts .
Sorry, Carolyn, I'll be more cognizant of that!
