Excellent butter tarts. Just the right amount of everything. I put way more in each one and still had enough filling for 16. Thanks for posting this recipe!

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
