1 cup white flour
2 tbsp very cold water
1/3 cup of melted butter
1 1/2 cups of brown sugar

Tart filler - Stir all the filling ingredients together in a bowl and set aside until tart shells are prepared.
Tart shells - Mix flour and salt in a large bowl.
Cut cold butter into walnut sized cubes.
Incorporate butter into flour until dough is the consistency of oatmeal.
In a small separate bowl, whisk together water and egg.
Add the mix and blend smooth until dough holds together well.
Chill for 30 minutes, then roll out and cut with a floured cutter to create circles.
Press circles into a greased muffin tin or tart pan and spoon filler to 3/4 full in each tart
Bake at 400F for 15-20 minutes; filling will be lightly browned but still bubbling.
