The Bag Lady had a bounty of raspberries one year, so was searching for raspberry recipes and came across this one, which quickly became a favourite. Actually, anything made with raspberries is good, as far as the Bag Lady is concerned. Hilary over at the Smitten Image mentioned Raspberry Butter Tarts on her blog the other day, so this is for her…
Raspberry Butter Tarts
1 ¼ Cups raspberries
2/3 C butter
1 Cup sugar
1/3 Cup flour
1/4 tsp Grated lemon rind
Divide berries among pastry shells – approximately 5 or 6 berries per shell. Cook butter in saucepan about 10 minutes until golden brown. Whisk eggs and sugar together, add flour, lemon rind and salt. Mix ‘til smooth. Whisk in butter gradually. Spoon over berries – fill approximately ¾ full. Bake on middle rack of oven at 400 for 15 – 20 minutes (‘til golden) Cool 15 minutes in pan, remove from pan and cool completely.
The Bag Lady would provide a link for Hilary's post if she knew how...guess she needs a little more experience with this blogging (she hasn't even figured out how to do a blog roll, yet, but she's working on it!!)
In the meantime, she hopes that some of you will try this recipe, and if you do, will let her know what you think.
