Awesome Buttertarts


This is an old recipe that everyone always asks for when they try these tarts. They are best when eaten about 5 minutes out of the oven, but are great any time. Store these in a sealed container.

Editors Note

These are equally delicious made with 1 cup of chocolate chips instead of the raisins and pecans.
