Hi.

Welcome to my place.

I write about about being a 40-something mum of five wonderfully exasperating children, attachment parenting, my adventures in the kitchen, and whatever else comes to mind.

I cannot abide by butter tarts with raisins in them -- I mean, REALLY, they're called BUTTER tarts not RAISIN tarts, amirite?

Frustrated by sad grocery store tarts with soggy pastry and bakery ones filled with raisins, I finally started making them myself a few years ago.

This recipe makes 3 dozen tarts. You will either need 600g pie pastry or 3 dozen unbaked pre-made tart shells. It is easy to make and goes together quickly.
