1 3/4 c. all-purpose flour

1 c. powdered sugar
1/2 c. butter
1/3 c. dark corn syrup

Preheat oven to 400. Combine all tart shell ingredients in a large mixing bowl. Beat at medium speed, scraping bowl often, until mixture is crumbly.

Bake for 7-10 minutes, until very lightly browned. Remove from oven. Reduce oven temperature to 350.
