These were a delicious variation on your traditional butter tart in a pastry shell. I found that I only needed 1 1/2 cups of the graham cracker crumb mix to fill my 12 muffin tins. A hint for packing down your graham crackers is to use the bottom of your 1/4 cup measuring cup to push down the graham cracker crust firmly. 12 tablespoons is equal to 3/4 cup, which might be helpful to know when measuring out your butter. I split the recipe between the original as written, and the second half using Splenda white and Splenda brown sugar blend. Both were great, so this recipe adapts well for those looking to reduce the calories. By using Splenda I brought the calories down to 250, and the carbs down to 19 g per serving. I worried that I might not be a able to take these out of the muffin tins without breaking them, but once cooled and loosened on the edges with a sharp knife, they came right out. Next time I'd like to try adding nuts, chocolate or coconut. Thanks for the great recipe.
