A no-fail buttery flakey crust topped with the most delicious butter tart-like filling! --- these take little time to make and are so delicious, please make the crust only on a food processor it will not have the same texture if mixed by hand --- servings are only estimated it depends on what size you cut the squares :)

Mmmm!These were so good.They are perfect for the times when you are craving a butter tart but don't want to go to the trouble of rolling pastry etc.Just a tad too sweet for my taste(I used all golden sugar, so using all dark brown might make a difference??)--I might cut back a little bit on the sugar for next time or sub a little bit of corn syrup instead, but all in all, a super square to have with a cup of coffee.Thanks for the recipe!!!
