Ingredients

1½ cups
all-purpose flour
375 mL
½ tsp
salt
2 mL
½ cup
cold unsalted butter, cut into small cubes
125 mL
1
egg yolk
2 tsp
white vinegar
10 mL
Filling:
1 cup
corn syrup
250 mL
½ cup
firmly packed brown sugar
125 mL
2
eggs
¼ cup
unsalted butter, melted
60 mL
1 tsp
vanilla extract
5 mL
1 tsp
white vinegar
5 mL
½ tsp
salt
2 mL

Directions

Step 1
In large bowl, whisk flour with salt. Cut in butter with pastry blender or rub through fingertips until mixture resembles coarse meal. In small bowl, whisk egg yolk with vinegar and 3 tbsp (45 mL) ice water. Stir into the flour mixture until dough just comes together. Do not overwork. Stir in 1 tbsp (15 mL) more water if needed. Form dough into a flattened disk, wrap in plastic wrap and refrigerate at least 1 hr.
Step 2
Roll dough on lightly floured work surface. Using 4-in. (10-cm) round cutter, cut into 12 rounds, rerolling scraps as needed. Fit each round into standard muffin tins. Chill 10 min. in freezer.
Step 3
Preheat oven to 400°F (200°C). Set rack to lowest position. To make filling, in bowl, whisk corn syrup, brown sugar, eggs, melted butter, vanilla, vinegar and salt until blended. Spoon filling into pastry shells ¾ full. Place muffin tin on baking sheet lined with parchment or foil to catch drips.
Step 4
Bake 18 to 20 min. or until filling is puffed and bubbly and pastry is golden brown. Transfer muffin tin to a wire rack. Let stand 5 min. Run paring knife around tarts to loosen. Carefully slide metal spatula under tarts to remove. Transfer tarts to rack to cool completely.
