    good morning and happy thursday locos. A few holidays today. In China, we have Qing Ming Jie (aka Chinese Memorial Day/Tomb Sweeping Day/All Souls Day). It’s also in Hong Kong and Taiwan. Taiwan calls this Tomb Sweeping Day. Taiwan also has Women’s and Children’s Day (a new holiday that started in 2011). There was mention of memorial day, that means it’s time to bring out the bbq!!

    Bing Translator gives Cruz’s reply as “At the foot of the letter”. Can anyone translate this better?

    I will make “Butter Tarts” today.

    Butter Tarts

    Make the pastry for the tart shells and cut them in rounds big enough for your tart tin using a cookie cutter. Grease the tin, and set the shells in.

    The filling

    ½ Cup brown sugar
    ¼ Cup corn syrup
    3 Tablespoons soft butter
    1 egg (well beaten)
    ½ teaspoon vanilla (real only) (artificial affects the taste for the worse)
    Pinch of salt
    1 ½ teaspoons vinegar (white)
    1/3 cup currants or raisins (plump them before measuring)
    ¼ cup chopped walnuts (optional)

    (I always make these with currants only.)

    Mix all ingredients together (two eggs may be used if desired, for a softer, less sugary filling.)
    Fill unbaked pastry tart shells until 2/3 full.
    Usually fills 24 small tart shells using only one egg.
    Preheat oven to 375 degrees and bake until set (on second rack) (top rack is first) about 12 to 15 minutes depending on size.
    Longer if bigger.

    Notes from me:

    If you don’t have a tart pan, use a greased muffin tin.
    Plumping currants or raisins is simply pouring boiling water over them and letting them stand 5 minutes. Pour off the water, and dry on a paper towel.
    Keep a close eye on the baking after the 12 minute mark. When the top of the pastry is golden, the tarts are done.
    I have never used walnuts, and have never missed them.
    A pinch of salt is just that. Make a small pile of salt; pinch the pile between thumb and forefinger and that’s a pinch.
    After the tarts are removed from the oven, immediately remove carefully from the tin, and cool on a cake rack.
    If you don’t eat them all at once, they will keep in a sealed container in the fridge for 2 days. (They may keep longer, but they’ve never existed for longer than 2 days.)

    @pschearer

    I can not. That’s what it looks like to me, but I don’t know if it means anything special in Spanish.

    @ pshearer:
    Google translates it as “the verbatim/exactly/literally/letter/face value.” Take your pick. I guess “queen bee” doesn’t translate into Spanish.
