Maple Raisin Tart

Tart Recipes






















 I decided that with Mother's Day on the horizon I would surprise my mother with a treat, so I decided to try something that my mom would enjoy and that's something sweet. I personally am not much of a sweet/dessert eater but I know many out there can be and in moderation I guess it can be okay. I have not made many desserts in the past and can say that the first time I tried this I learned that you should keep the pie shell in the foil while it cooks. The second time though was a charm and I even enjoyed a piece myself with the family who gave me rave reviews. I made sure to search all over the net trying to find something that my mom would enjoy and I substituted some of the ingredients for healthier choices like raisins. The pie shell that I chose was flaky as I feel a pie should be, the messier the better and to top it off once your ready to serve, add a scoop of your favourite ice cream or whip cream. I think all the mothers out there would appreciate an effort from their kids and hope all you moms enjoyed your special day.
