ukrainian christmas: pecan and raisin butter tarts

ButterTarts9ButterTarts5Merry Ukrainian Christmas! Is that how you would say it? Whatever the case may be, today is the beginning of Ukrainian Christmas. Just when you thought the holidays were over, along comes another one! You just can’t escape the festivities.

Being that I am Ukrainian, I will be celebrating with my family tonight. At least in the sense of food and togetherness. Isn’t that the best kind of celebration, though? While I initially made this butter tart recipe for Christmas on December 25th, I wanted to have them again for our Ukrainian Christmas meal. They’re just that good.

(makes 30 tarts)
1 1/2 cups packed brown sugar

2 eggs
1/2 cup butter
