"Any Harry Potter fan knows what this is. I finally procured the recipe from an British friend of mine. I know I can now find 'Lyle's Golden Syrup' in the grocery store along with the pancake syrups. Serve with ice cream or whipped cream." — OCEANVIXEN79

Treacle is another name in Britain for Golden Syrup the nearest product here would be dark caro syrup. There is a Black Treacle in Britain that is similar to your mollases but that is different to golden syrup treacle and is not used on Treacle Tart. The name of the recipe is correct and it tastes great!!!
I love this! Just like the ones I grew up with in England. My Mum always made individual tarts(just reduce the cooking time)and I prefer it that way for the filling/pastry ratio. You have to appreciate a fairly sweet dessert to enjoy this and I do. My kids loved it especially with the Harry Potter tie in!
Used ready made pie shell and it was so tasty! Especially with a little English custard on top!!!
I am rating this a 4 for the idea because treacle (similar to our molasses) tarts are popular in Britain but Golden Syrup is a totally different product..........so perhaps the title is wrong.
Reading the other comments, I ordered a tin of Lyle's Golden Syrup from England to make this recipe. I later found that you can order it from Walmart on-line. So I ordered a case... Today I was in the Food City Grocery store in Greeneville Tennessee and found the Lyle's Golden Syrup in the pancake syrup area... So
Golden Syrup is definitely available in the US. I tried this recipe and the one from Lyle's in England and found that this one is more to the American taste.
