If you are feeling adventurous, you can substitute the walnut raisin filling for something like a Chocolate Mousse or a Cheesecake Cream. So many options for these bite-size tarts. Soon I will post some of my favorite fillings.

Don’t you hate it when raisins get stuck together in a big clump? To unstick the raisins, wet your hands with a little water then work the raisins apart.

    These little tarts are a great addition to your weekend morning coffee or tea. They are easy to make especially if you do it in two stages. I usually make the pastry one day and the filling the next. They are very addictive. Two thumbs up.
