When I was growing up one of my favorite desserts my Mum would make was treacle tart, a tart lined with golden syrup (pure cane syrup from the UK and can be found in a lot of US grocery stores), mixed with bread crumbs and baked - gooey sweet and so good.
I found these lovely golden raisins and decided to make mini tarts with golden syrup and raisins, they turned out great. I gave most of them away as I don't need to eat them as trying to lose weight after the little guy arrived. I am just having the best fun inventing baked goodies, endless possibilities.
- 8 oz flour
- pinch of salt
- 4 oz butter
- cold water to mix about 2 tablespoon
- 1/2 cup golden raisins
- 1/2 cup white bread crumbs
- 1/2 - 1 cup golden syrup enough to coast raisins and bread crumbs
- sift flour and salt into a bowl
- mix in butter by hand until it resembles fine bread crumbs
- add cold water until it forms a paste
- roll out to and link a muffin pan
- fill with the raisin, bread crumb and golden syrup mixture and add a little criss-cross of pastry over the mini tarts
- bake at 400F for 20 minutes or until pastry is golden.
