Mom has put this in as her favourite butter tart recipe.


1 ½ cup currants [rinsed and drained]

1 ½ cup brown sugar

2 eggs slightly beaten

butter the size of an egg [melted]

½ teaspoon nutmeg

½ teaspoon cinnamon

3 small tablespoons vinegar


Use the regular pie crust for the tart shells. Fill before baking the pastry. You can also use the small frozen ones from the store.


Mix all of the ingredients together. Fill the unbaked shells, but not too full. Bake at 400F for about 10 minutes.

This is Rosemary’s favourite butter tart of all time.
