    ScrappieDoo's Note:

    A perfect buttery sweet filling makes these irresistable! Passed down by my great Aunt who was French Canadian. She cooked with approximate measures, so these amounts may vary to taste.

      I've tried a hundred different versions of butter tart filling and this one is the BEST. Not jelly, not too gooey. Just PERFECT!

      Very good sweet custardy consistency to this filling! I made pastry from scratch with a lard base and baked them at a lower temperature (325) for a few minutes longer. Keep an eye on the colour to know when done. This baking method was recommended by a master baker friend for pastry. <br/>Grandpa Bruce devoured them when I brought him a couple for a hospital visit!

      I have made this with golden brown sugar as well as with demerara brown sugar. Everyone who has tried them has loved them. I even had a special request for them from the school librarian. For hers I made them with the golden brown sugar and no raisins or nuts. These make perfect butter tarts every time!
