Never heard those terms, now can you please explain a custard tart to me?

Are you still able to get Peak Frean biscuits and cookies in Canada, I miss them.

Custard tart? Never heard of it.

Peak Freans, I've seen them, but how recently I couldn't say. I've probably had them at someone's house. The only cookies we buy are
(or the chip ones, if they are out of the chunk ones) and cookies from Monsieur Félix & Mr. Norton Cookies or Chips Ahoy.

I miss butter tarts. When I lived on the border and would go visit friends in Canada I loved being able to stop at a store and pick up a thing of butter tarts. One of the few things I like raisins in. And some of my friends had grandmothers that made the best homemade butter tarts. They always thought I was crazy for making such a fuss when they shared them with me. Maybe I will have to make some for Thanksgiving or Chrisrmas this year.

Mmmmm, pumpkin pie and turkey and gravy and mashed potatoes and vanilla sweet potatoes and dressing/stuffing and lime jello salad and rutabegas and cranberry sauce and the pickle/olive tray and squash with butter and brown sugar and... Sorry, my brain went off on a tangent when I mentioned Thanksgiving.
