Make It

  • Use pulsing action to process flour, 1/2 cup butter and cream cheese product in food processor until mixture is well blended and starts to form ball. Shape into ball with hands; wrap tightly with plastic wrap. Refrigerate 1 hour or until chilled.

  • Heat oven to 375ºF. Roll out pastry on lightly floured surface to 1/4-inch thickness. Cut into 12 rounds with 4-inch cutter. Spray 12 muffin pan cups with cooking spray; line with pastry rounds. Place raisins in pastry cups.

  • Beat remaining butter, sugar and vanilla with mixer until well blended. Stir in egg and corn syrup; spoon over raisins.

  • Bake 15 to 18 min. or until lightly browned.

Ratings & Reviews



very good. Nothing beats a butter tart. Creamy and delicious.




I really like the pastry, however the filling was very runny. Is there a way to make the filling less runny- more like a classic butter tart?


I would most definitely make these again. So easy and delicious. Everyone was impressed. A Canadian favourite!


These were fantastic. Unfortunately I didn't have cream cheese on hand so I made a basic pie crust pastry for the tart shells. I also used 1/4 cup corn syrup and 1/4 cup maple syrup because I didn't want an overwhelming sweetness but I wanted a little of the maple flavour to come through. Worked out wonderfully!



This was a fairly easy recipe although I substituted regular sugar for brown sugar and maple syrup for corn syrup. I also did not include raisins since I'm not a fan. It turned out really well. Quick to make and got rave reviews from my family.
