Grandma's Butter Tarts

READY IN: 25mins
Recipe by Purdy Good Cook

This recipe has been past down from my Grandma to so many people. I have tasted many butter tarts, but these are definitely the best. Everyone who has ever tasted one has asked for the recipe. We make these every year at Christmas. Hope you enjoy these as much as my family does.

This is a great tasting, easy recipe for butter tarts. I made this for the mini dessert buffet for my parents 50th anniversary party. I used Short crust Pastry Recipe 177343 and placed them in a muffin tin.
