Cream the butter, shortening and sugar. Add the flour and salt and mix until crumbly. Add the water and milk slowly. Do not over mix. Cover; cool and refrigerate for 2 hours. Roll out to 1/4-inch thickness and set into a 9-inch tart shell.

Custard Filling

Whisk together all ingredients, except raisins and apricots; strain. Add raisins. Cut apricots into wedges. Line them up on the bottom of the tart shell in a fan shape. Pour custard to the top. Bake at 325°F for 45 minutes until custard becomes firm. Refrigerate for 1 hour before serving.
