Ingrients & Directions


2 Eggs
1/2 c Butter or margarine
1 pn Salt
1 c Granulated sugar
1/4 c Fresh, frozen, or canned
-lemon juice
1 c Dark or light raisins
1 Teasp. vanilla extract
1/2 c Coarsely chopped walnuts
1/2 c Heavy cream, whipped

Early in day: Start heating oven to 450? F. Roll out all of pastry.
Cut into 5″ squares. Snugly fit each square into 2 3/4″ muffin cup so
corners stick up or lay over rim of muffin pan; prick. Bake about 10
min., or until golden. Cool on wire rack. Carefully lift from muffin
pans.

In saucepan, beat eggs with fork; stir in butter, salt, sugar, lemon
juice, and raisins. Bring to full boil over low heat, stirring
constantly. Refrigerate.

At serving time: Into raisin mixture, stir vanilla and nuts. Spoon
into tart shells. Top with whipped cream. Makes about 10 tarts.

Gay Touches: Make these tarts look like sundaes: Top whipped cream
with different garnishes-whole or chopped walnuts, bits of citron and
preserved orange rind, thin slices of dates, candied or maraschino
cherries (whole, sliced, or chopped).
