Butter tarts are DH's favourite, these squares are just as good as the tarts and not near the trouble to make. They will become a regular for his "cookie jar". Thanks friend Ranikabani for sharing a sweet one!!

As a coeliac, I substituted the flour for the gluten free stuff and I still thought the end result was great. It was easy to make and very 'more-ish'. (Just presumed that the melted butter & salt were added after the beating of the eggs...?)

This recipe didnt turn out at all. It looks or tastes nothing like butter tart squares. I think some of the recipe is missing. Its was quite gross.
