Butter tarts!

Posted by andrea tomkins in: Easy ways to make kids happy|Recipes and Food

Once the cooler weather hits, I start craving things like this:

Hot butter tart + coffee = heaven. Who wants the recipe? :)

If you’re not the kind of person who likes sweet treats (but not rolling out crust) you can try this recipe that involves ready-made tart shells. OR you can try this recipe for butter tart squares.

Do you have a favourite butter tart recipe? If so I’d love it if you shared it. I need to get over my fear of rolling out my own pastry!

You may know that I adore pies, and pie making, and tarts, and tart making. I make all kinds of pies but butter tarts are the one thing that elude me. They just never turn out!

I should make it my project for fall.

The Obligatory Blurb

My name is Andrea and I live in the Westboro area of Ottawa with my husband Mark and our dog Piper who is kind of a big deal on Instagram. We also have two human daughters: Emma (20) and Sarah (18). During the day I work as a writer at The Royal Ottawa Mental Health Centre. I am a longtime Ottawa blogger and I've occupied this little corner of the WWW since 1999. The Fishbowl is my whiteboard, water cooler, and journal, all rolled into one. I'm passionate about healthy living, arts and culture, family travel, great gear, good food, and sharing the best of Ottawa for families. I also love vegetables, photography, gadgets, and great design.
