“I was looking through my grandmothers cookbook and I found this recipe, well im glad I did, I used golden syrup instead of trackle cause im really not sure what it is. But these taste amazing.”
2 dozen miniature tarts.

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 9 ounces pie crust pastry dough (enough for two single standard pie crusts)
  • 11 tablespoons black treacle (can use golden syrup if desired)
  • 1 heaping teaspoon ground ginger (optional)
  • 4 ounces unseasoned breadcrumbs


  1. After greasing the pan first, line each cup of a miniature muffin baking pan with the pastry, rolled as thin as possible.
  2. Warm the treacle in a saucepan.
  3. Add the ginger and stir in the breadcrumbs.
  4. Spoon the breadcrumb mixture into each pastry cup only about 2/3rds full.
  5. Bake for 15 to 20 minutes, watching closely so the crust edges do not burn.
