Hello from Canadian Best Butter Tarts and welcome to the sweet land of 5 star cookies.

Today is Thanksgiving in Canada, so …

HAPPY THANKSGIVING TO ALL MY READERS FROM CANADA!

And because of that I am making the recipe that is the most CANADIAN called…

THE BEST BUTTER TARTS!

I was making preparation for this recipe for a while or since I made Easy Mini Pie Crust or Butter Tart Shells

So, dear my readers have you heard about butter tarts? Are you aware of the anger regarding the raisins? To have them or not? Screw Hamlet and his “To be or not to be”. The real dilemma is here, in Canada.

Do you want raisins in your recipe or not? Since I value the peace more than anything in this life it is your choice if you want to add it or not.

So, what kind of the perfect butter tarts can you make? (you have many choices…)

  • Plain
  • With raisins
