I have been making these butter tarts for years and my family just loves them. The recipe is adapted from an old recipe from my grandmother.

  • Beat brown sugar and butter together in a bowl until creamy; beat in eggs, cream, and vanilla extract until combined. Fill tart shells 2/3 full with butter mixture.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until pastry is lightly golden, about 18 minutes; remove to cool on a wire rack.

Cook's Note:

If using homemade pastry, roll pastry out 1/8-inch thick on a floured surface; cut into circles with a round biscuit cutter. Press rounds into bottom and up the sides of wells of a mini tart pan for shells.
