"Old family recipe from my daughter-in-laws family in southern Mississippi. It is very good."


  • 330 g packed brown sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 115 g butter
  • 290 g raisins
  • 30 ml heavy cream
  • 115 g chopped walnuts
  • 30 (2 inch) unbaked tart shells


  1. Preheat oven to 325 degrees F (170 degrees C).
  2. Cream the butter, sugar and eggs well. Add remaining ingredients and mix thoroughly.
  3. Pour batter into tart shells, no more than half full. Bake for 20 - 25 minutes. Watch carefully!!--they'll burn quickly. Filling will keep in the refrigerator for 2 weeks or so. Liquid coffee creamer can be used for cream. Use any good pie pastry for shells.
