  • “This is the wrost recipe ever.Are you kidding me 3/4 c water, way too runny.”

  • “these are sooooo good and so easy to make! I was able to get 15 normal size tarts out of this recipe!! “

  • “I cheated and used mini pre-madetart shells, and I got about 32 tarts out of this.Sooo good..I took them to a potluck and they were devoured.Perfect texture (not too runny) with a ton of raisins, just the way they should be.Because my tarts were smaller, I reduced the cooking time to about 18 minutes and they were perfect.DH and I are very glad that we kept a few tarts for ourselves!Will definitely make again, that’s for sure.”

  • “These really are delicious, I used my small muffin tin and actually got 24 tarts, a bonus!!”
