  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). Place tart shells on a baking sheet.
  2. Beat brown sugar and butter together with an electric mixer until creamy; beat in eggs, corn syrup, vanilla extract, lemon juice, cardamom, cinnamon, nutmeg, and ginger.
  3. Divide raisins evenly into the bottom of tart shells; pour about 2 tablespoons syrup mixture into each tart shell.
  4. Bake in the preheated oven until pastry is golden and filling is set, about 20 minutes; remove to cool on a wire rack.


  • Cook's Note:
  • Use your favourite pastry recipe to make the tart shells, or buy the frozen variety.
  • Editor's Note:
  • If using homemade pastry, roll dough out to 1/8-inch thickness and cut circles large enough to fit into the bottom and partway up sides of the wells of a muffin tin, using a round biscuit cutter. Press circles lightly into the wells of muffin tin to form shells.
