Maple Walnut Tarts






Maple syrup and walnuts,
 a great combination, 
make these sweet little tarts 
a delicious snack.


Ingredients:
2 eggs
1 cup maple syrup
2/3 cup brown sugar
1/3 cup unsalted butter, melted
A pinch of salt.
3/4 cup chopped walnuts.
(Walnuts may be substitued for currants, raisins etc.)

Preheat oven to 350 deg. F.
Sprinkle bottom of unbaked tart shells with some of the walnuts.

Whisk eggs in a large bowl, add maple syrup, brown sugar, melted butter and salt.

In a saucepan cook this mixture on medium heat for 3-4 minutes, stirring constantly to thicken. Do not overcook.
Add remaining walnuts.




Spoon filling into tart shells.
I divide equally into 20 store bought shells.

Bake 350 deg. for 20-25 minutes. 



This saucer/plate that I used is Johnson Bros.
"The Road Home" My only piece of these
beautiful dishes. A garage sale find.
