Specialty Recipe

English Butter Tarts

Ingredients Crust
2 cups flour
1/2 teaspoon salt
3/4 cup vegetable shortening
1 Tablespoon vinegar
5 tablespoons ice water
1 egg
1 cup light brown sugar
1 Tablespoon vinegar
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
1/4 cup melted butter, no substitutes
1/2 cup dried currants or raisins

Crust: Mix flour and salt. Cut in shortening using a pastry blender. Mix vinegar into ice water, then stir into flour mixture. Knead 10 times to thoroughly mix and form a ball of dough. Refrigerate 30 minutes or more. Roll out 1/8 inch on a floured surface and cut out circles with a 2-1/2-inch round cuter. Line ungreased tart pans with pastry.

Filling: Stir all ingredients together. When filling tart shells 2/3 full, stir once in a while as it tends to separate again. Bake at 400 degrees for 10 minutes, then turn the oven down to 350 degrees and continue baking for another 10 minutes.

Makes: 2 dozen
