“I make these butter tarts only at Christmas. They are small morsels of sweet sublime. I always use whole pecans--each tart gets its own crown of a whole pecan before baking.”

Ingredients Nutrition

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 450°F.
  2. In a saucepan, melt butter on low; add all the remaining ingredients except the raisins and/or pecans.
  3. Do not let it boil or the egg will cook.
  4. Fill tart shells (I use ready-made ones) only 2/3 full and top with a whole pecan if desired.
  5. Bake at 450°F for 8 minutes and then reduce temperature to 350°F for 15-20 minutes until delicately browned.
