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

      Butter Tarts

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

      Filling
      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.

          Don't know if you're interested, but I found this on Amazon. The same book is on eBay for $81.00.

          And a blog that might help...
