Maple Syrup ~ Currant Tarts

Savour the flavour 
of Quebec Maple Syrup
in these sweet butter tarts.


Ingredients:

2 Eggs
1 cup Maple Syrup
2/3 cup Brown Sugar
1/3 cup Butter, melted
1 pinch Salt
1 cup Currants
(Currants may be substitued for walnuts, raisins etc.)


 Sprinkle bottom of unbaked tart shells with some of the currants. 


Whisk eggs in a large bowl, add Maple Syrup, Brown Sugar, Melted Butter and Salt.

In a saucepan cook this mixture on medium heat for 3-4 minutes, stirring constantly to thicken. (Do not overcook).   Add remaining currants.

Spoon filling into tart shells.

I divide equally into 20 store bought shells.

At my local store in the pastry division, they sell the unbaked shells, frozen,  (20 in a pack). (IGA Store) 

Bake 350 for 20-30 mins.


Sorry...2 eggs not 3




Enjoy!!
