    And a blog that might help...

      2. Here's another recipe I found. It only says butter tarts.

        Butter Tarts

        1 1/2 c AP flour
        1 1/2 c cake flour
        1 t salt
        1 c shortening

        1/2 c butter
        1/2 c corn syrup
        1 c plumped and drained raisins
        2 eggs
        1 tsp lemon juice
        1 tsp vanilla

        Make pastry and cut into rounds to fill tart pans. Stir filling together so no foam appears. Spoon into pastry shells, filling no more than 2/3s full. Bake at 425 for 13-15 min.

        Notes: American flour is lower in protein so all AP works fine. Boil overs will fuse everything to the tins so watch carefully.
