3/4 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup corn syrup
1/4 cup melted butter
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 teaspoon apple cider vinegar
Preheat the oven to 375ºF.
Line a 6-cup nonstick baking tin with the pie dough circles. Make sure the circles hang over slightly. If using raisins or pecans, divide them between each muffin cup.
In a large bowl, whisk together the brown sugar, corn syrup, eggs, melted butter, vanilla and vinegar. Pour the mixture into each lined muffin cup.
Bake the tarts until the crust is golden and the filling has formed a crust and is just set, about 17 to 20 minutes.
