Butter Tarts with Pecans or Raisins

So in Canada Butter Tarts are a big deal. Most people buy them at their local markets, bakeries or convenience stores. If you go to Canada, you have to check these out especially on the East Coast they seem to have created the best butter tarts.  As you know, I just recently hosted Canadian Thanksgiving, and now I want to share with you my special recipe.

1/2 cup light corn syrup
1/2 cup dark corn syrup
3 eggs
1 cup sugar
1 1/2 teaspoons Vanilla
1/2 cup raisins
1/2 cup pecans

1st make Home Made Pie or Tart  Crust then set a side. Next Make filling  take eggs, Corn syrups, sugar, and Vanilla and mix in large bowl until a thick consistency appears.
