Easy, fairly quick and foolproof. Tastes like maple sugar candy... in a yummy easy to eat bite! I made these for a party and all the men devoured them. I'd like to figure out a fun & pretty way to garnish them... perhaps a sprinkle of brown sugar?
This recipe reminded me of my aunt's recipe : Maple Syrup Pie It's so easy to do and delicious. The same taste. I omitted the nuts cause I prefer it without. Thanks Evelyn :) Made for 123 hit wonders.
Very tasty sweet treat, Ev. I picked this for the Canada ZWT photo challenge because the butter tart is uniquely Canadian & this 1 uses maple syrup as an ingredient. My DH was even able to find REAL Canadian maple syrup for me to use. I made 3 diff variations - the tart shell to reflect the recipe as written, my ramekin version & a larger one I made as a pie because I don't have a tart pan. I made a dbl recipe so I'd have enough filling for all 3 & was a little uneasy about the prep using so much cornstarch all at once, but it worked easily. Pics will be posted when I sort out the best of the lot. Thx for posting.
