Ingredients

  • Pastry for 12 tarts

Filling

  • 1/4 cup butter, soft
  • 2/3 cup brown sugar, packed
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1/3 cup maple syrup
  • 1 cup California walnuts, coarsely chopped

Preparation

  1. On lightly floured surface, roll out pastry to 1/8-inch thickness. Cut into twelve 3 3/4-inch rounds; press into large tart pans.
  2. In medium bowl, cream butter and brown sugar until fluffy. Beat in eggs and vanilla. Beat in maple syrup. Fold in walnuts and immediately spoon into tart shells.
  3. Bake in 375° F oven for 15 to 18 minutes or until pastry is golden brown and filling is set. For a runnier filling, use shorter cooking time. Let cool in pan for a few minutes, then remove to rack to cool completely.
