Directions:
Pastry
"I make a pastry mix and just store the crumbs in the frig. 7 cups cake and pastry flour cut in 1 lb. crisco and rub together with your hand. About 3 cups will make the tarts. Mix with very little cold water at a time until it is staying together. Good for pies".

Make about 1 doz. large tarts if your pans are large. I use a large coffee can to cut them out."

Filling
"I soak the raisins in some hot water and then drain and divide them up in the bottom of the shells and put a large tblsp of the syrup over them. Divide up the balance of the mixed ingredients.

Don't make them too full."
