The next best thing to a butter tart...for my hubby, it's a toss-up, he luvs 'em both...

1 and 1/4 cups flour
1/2 cup butter/margarine
1/4 cup brown sugar

Press into an ungreased 9-inch square pan. Bake 15 minutes at 350 degrees.

1/3 cup butter
1 tsp. vanilla
1 cup brown sugar
2 tbsp. cream
1 cup raisins
1 beaten egg
1 tbsp. flour

Mix and spread over base. Return to oven and bake 20-30 minutes until golden brown. Cut into squares.

Or, if you're looking for the real thing, these are hubby's favourite butter tarts:

1 cup brown sugar
2 tbsp. butter
1/2 cup corn syrup
2 eggs
3/4 tsp. vanilla
1 cup raisins

Mix ingredients in order given. Fill unbaked tart shells and bake at 350 degrees for 20 minutes or until lightly browned.
