1 1/2 cups
packed brown sugar
I'm not even a huge butter tart fan, but these squares are unbelievably good. I followed the recipe exactly (including the optional ingredients) - except I doubled it and used a 9 by 13 pan (did not need to adjust baking time at all). To the reviewer who said their crust was crumbly, the only thing I can think of was that they didn't work the butter in enough with a pastry blender. My crust was perfect. As another reviewer suggested, I refrigerated it first before cutting. I also stored it in the fridge to keep the squares firm. The only negative thing I could possibly say about this recipe is that it's so addictive, it's almost impossible not to overindulge.
Pretty good... I had to make a few adjustments though. 1 1/2 cups of brown sugar was too much for me, so I added 1 cup instead. I didn't think the coconut flakes was a good idea but I used it anyways. I was suprised that I couldn't even taste it. I also added in a handful of chopped walnuts. That really helps.
Just like a real butter tart!!
I love baking, but pastry just is not my thing, so these were perfect!
I cut the sugar back by half, added the coconut, raisins & some walnuts, i also used maple flavour instead of vanilla.
Big hit with everybody :)
These tasted great but what a mess coming out of the pan and trying to eat. I didn't use the "optional" coconut or raisins. I would imagine they are what holds the recipe together and probably shouldn't be optional. Otherwise they were really good and do taste like a butter tart. Also, this is probably the easiest recipe I have ever prepared. About 15 min and I had them cooking.
Very good! Grease the pan with butter generously before baking and they will not sick. Even easier to get out of pan if you use a pyrex dish.
My new favorite recipe! These are soooo good, I wish I'd tried them sooner. Followed the recipe exactly as written. One thing to note - after you've beaten the eggs combine the rest of the ingredients by hand, stirring only until just blended. Don't use your mixer. This will help prevent the squares from coming out runny.
This recipe was DELICIOUS - I made it for a cake sale and they sold out within half an hour! The only thing I would suggest is can look a bit plain, so I drizzled melted plain chocolate over the top - it looked fantastic. Thanks so much, I'll definitely be making this again.
