Due to user error, bad reviews (wrongly) happen to great recipes. This turned out perfectly. I DID adjust the baking time, as I was using a traditional lard pastry crust and I wanted to be sure it cooked through. I baked at 425 for 15 mins and then down to 400 for another 5 mins. The pastry was golden brown, and the filling nicely set - consistency of jelly, not runny. Thank you so much for posting this traditional French Canadian dessert! Grandma Watts would be proud!

Delish!! I followed the recipe exactly except I didn't have walnuts, but they would be so good in this recipe so I will use them next time! A truly Canadian classic, and one of the best butter tarts I have had! Make sure to use PURE Maple syrup!! The pure maple syrup is thick and not too sweet!

These turned out awesome. They had a nice flavour of maple that blended well with the nuts and raisins. They were slightly runny but we like them that way. Would do this recipe again.
