BBB Mini Tarts

Jason Smith, FNS

Makes 14 Tarts


2-Sheets premade pie dough, or homemade pie dough

½-Cup Butter

1 1/3-Cup Light Corn Syrup

½-Cup White Sugar

½-Cup Brown Sugar

4-Eggs, lightly beaten

3-TBSP Bourbon

1-tsp Vanilla

1-Pound Bacon


· Preheat oven to 350, spray 14 mini tart pans.

· Cook bacon crispy, lay on a paper towel to drain, crumble up.

· Using a cookie cutter any shape that’s slightly larger than the tart pans, cut out circles or

whatever shape you are using and place in tart pans.

· In a mixing bowl place the sugars, syrup, eggs, bourbon and vanilla, stir to combine.

· Add the butter to syrup mixture and stir in.

· Divide the bacon between the art shells.

· Pour the syrup mix over bacon, dividing between all of the tarts.

· Place the tarts on a baking sheet, cover with foil and bake for 30 mins, remove foil and finish baking, about 10-15 mins, or until crust edges are golden brown and filling is bubbly.

Tip: To get the last 2 dough circle you can roll out the extra dough and keep cutting. Ifin you don’t like bacon you can make this with pecans or just leave it out.
