My guest today is Judy Griffith Gill, who has been writing for many years and now has a fair portion of her backlist up at Open Road Media, who’ve placed electronic copies with all the major outlets. Today, she shares a recipe for Butter Tarts, a Christmas favorite of her family. Check out the blurb for Renegade, one of her December releases, available at http://www.openroadmedia.com/authors/judy-g-gill.aspx
Judy’s Butter Tarts
1 c dark brown sugar, packed tightly
1/2 c corn syrup
3 eggs beaten
1 t Vanilla
1 c currants (not raisins)
Cream butter & sugar. Add corn syrup and eggs, beat until frothy, add vanilla. Set aside. Place pastry shells, uncooked, into tart pans, drop one T of currants into each. Carefully pour or ladle filling into the shells till each is about 2/3 full. (I use a gravy boat to pour the mixture, catching drips on a spoon.) Bake at 400 F. for 10 minutes, lower heat to 350, bake another 20 minutes until pastry is brown.
What? You want a calorie count? It’s Christmas, for Pete’s sake.
They married for all the wrong reasons. But can a marriage of convenience become a love affair for all time?
Marrying Renny Knight was the biggest mistake of Jacquie Train’s life. After the seductive rogue got what he wanted, he walked away without a backward glance, never knowing about her tragic secret. Now he’s back—and as dangerously irresistible as ever. Why has Renny suddenly reappeared? And what does he want? Traveling the world can’t dim the memories of the passion Renny shared with the woman he wed strictly for business reasons. And finding Jacquie again is some kind of miracle, the end of a two-year quest. What will it take to convince her to open her heart to him again? Because Renny won’t rest until he has Jacquie where he wants her—safe and loved in his arms for the rest of their lives.
