This recipe was good but not my favourite (I'm vary particular about my butter tarts) I found that using only 1 tbls of filling in each shell the recipe would have made way more than 16. I ended up making 20 with 1 1/2 - 2 tbls of filling in each

I found this recipe very easy to make (with a packaged pie crust in a muffin tin), and very tasty, thankyou! I made this without nuts as I didn't have any on hand. next time I think I'll be adding some walnuts or pecans :)
