Pastry for 12 tarts

1/4 cup soft butter
2/3 cup packed brown sugar
2 large eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/3 cup maple syrup
1 cup coarsely chopped California Walnuts

Cooking Directions:

  1. On lightly floured surface, roll out pastry to 1/8-inch thickness. Cut into twelve 3 3/4-inch rounds; press into large tart pans.
  2. In medium bowl, cream butter and brown sugar until fluffy. Beat in eggs and vanilla. Beat in maple syrup. Fold in walnuts and immediately spoon into tart shells.
  3. Bake in a preheated oven at 375°F (190°C) for 15 to 18 minutes or until pastry is golden brown and filling is set. For a runnier filling, use shorter cooking time. Let cool in pan for a few minutes, then remove to rack to cool completely.
