Butter Tarts......and books.....

ok, a few people have asked what butter tarts are.....calories in a pastry case mainly, but also devine treats that my family only eats at Christmas time. i'll share the recipe and you can have a try yourselves....i have made them and taken them to scrapmates before!.

Canadian Butter Tarts
8ozs short sweet pastry
1 c sultanas
1 c brown sugar
1 egg beaten
2 TBSPNS butter
1/2t vanilla extract
1/2t nutmeg.

Roll and line 18 patty pans. Scald the sultanas with boiling water, then drain well. While the fruit is hot, add the sugar, butter, egg, vanilla and nutmeg.
Put a dessert spoon of mix into each patty case, and then bake at 180C/350F for 15-20mins.

One more photo to add for today.....i collect childrens christmas stories and when i was in Enfield this morning i popped into Waterstones and had a look at what they had....and came home with this haul!!. I love Splat the Cat, so am thrilled to bits theres a Christmas story to add to the collection!!.
