butter tart squares

I usually make these butter tart squares when I'm too lazy to make actual butter tarts. You get the same gooey deliciousness with half the work. 

1/2 C cold butter, cut into cubes
1/4 C sugar
pinch of salt
1 C flour

1. Using a stand mixer, beat butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Add salt and flour and mix until just combined (don't over mix, there should be chunks of butter and flour).

2. Press into a greased 8x8-inch pan and bake at 350 for 25-30 minutes or until golden. Let cool completely.

1/4 C soft butter
1 C brown sugar
2 eggs
1 tsp pure vanilla extract
1/4 C corn syrup
1 tbsp flour
1/2 tsp baking powder
pinch of salt
1/3 C raisins (optional)

1. Using a stand mixer, bet sugar and butter until light and fluffy. Add eggs one at a time until incorporated. Add in vanilla and corn syrup, then flour, salt and baking powder.

2. Sprinkle raisins over the cooled crust. Pour filling over raisins evenly. Bake at 350 for 30-35 minutes or until just set. If the middle puffs a bit, don't worry, it'll go down when cooled. Cool completely before serving.
