These Muffins are so yummy. They actually taste like Butter tarts. I got the recipe from the LCBO magazine, I love that magazine! This recipe was from a coffee shop in Huntsville Ontario. I made 10 muffins using the 12 muffin tin pan, but they say to make 6 large. Mine turned out great.

This is one very nice tasting muffin. Less messy to eat than a butter tart. LoL! Unfortunately they didn't dome for me, but that's fine, the taste more then made up for it. Made for PAC Fall '08. :)
