Banbury Tarts


  • 1 cup raisins
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • juice and rind of 1 lemon
  • 1/4 cup sifted crumbs


Seed and chop raisins, and mix with sugar, lemon, and crumbs. Roll paste one-eighth inch thick, and cut in three-inch rounds; put half a tablespoon of raisin mixture on half of each round, moisten edges with water, fold double, and press edges firmly together. Prick with a fork, and bake in a hot oven about fifteen minutes.
