  • 500g/18oz pie crust prepared or your favourite recipe
  • 150g/3/4cup brown sugar, packed
  • 125ml/1/2cup maple syrup
  • 75ml/1/3cup butter melted

  • 1 tbsp cider vinegar
  • 1/2 tsp salt

  • Preheat your oven to 350F/180C.
  • In a medium bowl combine melted butter, brown sugar, maple syrup, eggs, vinegar and salt and whisk until combined. Add raisins and chopped walnuts.
  • Roll out the pastry to a 1/8" thickness and cut out rounds with a 4" pastry cutter or use a glass. (My glass was 3.5" in diameter)Line muffin tin cups with pastry rounds. Fill the muffin cups with the maple/nut mixture until 2/3 full.
  • Bake for 20-25 minutes until the custard is set and the pastry is golden. Run a knife around the edges of the tarts as soon as you remove them from the oven to release them from the tin.
