Canadian Maple Butter Tarts

Canadian Maple Butter Tarts created by Michelle Berteig

I grew up near several large producing maple sugar bushes in Canada and maple syrup was in many things my mother made. Butter tarts are a traditional Canadian treat, these include real maple syrup.

    Very easy to make and taste great! I used chopped pecans and these taste like pecan pie. The recipe didn't say what size muffin pans to use, so I used a mini muffin pan, which was just right. I was able to cut 12 circles from each piecrust, that were the right size for the mini muffin pan, with a few scraps left over. This recipe made 24 tarts, that were mini-muffin sized. I sprayed the mini muffin pan with non-stick spray first. The baking time was perfect. Would definitely make again! Made for PAC Spring '08.
