"These butter tarts are traditionally Canadian, made with sweet maple syrup."
Hmm. None of these ingredients are on sale today.

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!
TRIED THIS RECIPE AND FOUND IT MUCH TOO SWEET
ALSO DID NOT SET AND IS VERY RUNNY
WILL STICK TO MY BASIC RECIPE
I ONLY WANTED TO MAKE SOMETHING DIFFERENT AND BOY WAS IT DIFFERENT
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!
Made this recipe exactly to the recipe. Freaking fantastic!! And so quick and simple!
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.
