They look tasty, Roch. Can you relate them to anything that's more familiar to the average non-Canadian?

Kind of like a gooey, runnier version pecan pie, without the pecans..brown sugar, butter, corn syrup, egg, vanilla..that's it..crust is just classic recipe on the lard box..I put a few rasins in mine, you can put walnuts, pecans, or nothing..

I wish you hadn't have said pecan pie. Here in Texas, pecan pie is sacred, but I can't eat it. It is just too sweet. One bite, and I'm in a sugar coma and my teeth hurt.

They does look good, though.

Something my mother always made and my older brothers favorite. I’m going to give him most of them. He squirrels them away in his freezer and pulls one out every so often for a fix. I had to eat a couple of broken ones...just to be sure they were ok.

I saw Andrew Zimmern enjoying those on one of his shows, about French Canada of course.

The ones on the show looked just 'meh', but your's looks fantastic, Rock.

Rock those butter tarts look wonderful!

When I was a teenager we used to go to an old bakery in Gananoque, Ontario to get a supply of butter tarts but they rarely survived the trip home.

Sometime try swapping the corn syrup for pure maple syrup.

Have a wonderful Christmas!
