"This is an old recipe that everyone always asks for when they try these tarts. They are best when eaten about 5 minutes out of the oven, but are great any time. Store these in a sealed container."

Found them to be a little too sweet, next time I will lower the amount of brown sugar. Otherwise a very creamy buttertart. I will make them again.
