Arab EC
1 cup currants
1 cup brown sugar
2 tablespoons buter
1 egg, beaten
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
1/2 teaspoon nutmeg
Flaky pastry, thawed or homemade
Clean currants, scald with boiling water and drain. While currants are still warm, add brown sugar, butter and egg. Stir well, adding vanilla and nutmeg. (If the ingredients are mixed together while the currants are still warm, there will be a nice, butterscotch-like syrup.) Line tart shells with flaky pastry; place a spoonful of filling in each shell. Bake at 400 degrees for 12-15 minutes.
