Butter Tart Squares

These babies do not disappoint. They are so creamy and delicious, I love baking them and getting to showing off while sharing them. An extra bonus is the house smells so yummy when you bake these, like a big sweet, creamy, candy store.

Use butter. It frustrates me beyond belief when people use margarine in recipes. Baking should be about ‘whole foods’ as much as possible. Throw the margarine out and do yourself, and those that eat the baking, a favour. Keep it real. Butter it up!!

Butter Tart Squares

Crust/Base
1/2 cup butter
2 tbsp icing sugar
1 1/4 cups all purpose flour

The Filling
1 1/4 cup brown sugar
1/4 cup of melted butter
2 eggs lightly beaten
1 tbsp distilled white vinegar
1 1/2 tsp vanilla
1 cup of raisins

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).

To Make Base: In a small mixer bowl, cream together 1/2 cup butter or margarine and confectioners’ sugar. Blend in flour. Pat into 9X9 inch square pan. Bake in preheated oven for 3 minutes.
To Make Filling: In a large bowl combine brown sugar, melted butter or margarine, beaten eggs, vinegar, vanilla, and raisins. Pour over base and bake in preheated oven for 35 to 40 minutes, until set.
Side Note: I use my mixer to beat the filling. I prefer the lighter texture instead of a more dense filling. It will appear foamy. But trust me, it’s amazing.
