Treacle Tarts

Mini Treacle Tarts

9 oz pie crust pastry (enough for two single standard pie crusts)

11 tablespoons black treacle (can use golden syrup if desired)

1 heaping teaspoon ground ginger, optional

4 dry oz (approx 2 cups) unseasoned breadcrumbs

Grease each cup of a miniature muffin baking pan first.

Line each cup of the miniature muffin baking pan with the pastry, rolled as thinly as possible.

Warm the treacle in a saucepan.

Add the ginger to the treacle and stir in the breadcrumbs.

Spoon the breadcrumb mixture into each pastry cup only about 2/3rds full. Bake for 15-20 minutes at 350 F, watching closely so the crust edges do not burn.

Serve at room temperature.
