Sandra's Butter Tarts

Rated as 4.56 out of 5 Stars

"This is super easy to prepare, especially if you are using prepared pastry tart shells. Even when I only have a few minutes I can still prepare something home-baked. It will be hard to keep these around for too long. My boys ask for them often."

No changes needed, amazing as written

This was just okay for me. To save on time, I used frozen/prepared mini tart shells. I then followed the recipe exactly, and found it be a bit bland. Perhaps this is best used as a 'base' recipe...

I added slivered almonds, which worked nicely. This is a very tasty recipe, but the tarts are very greasy :(

These turned out great only thing I changed in this was instead of using half&half I used heavy cream the whipping this is a great option for those who don't like raisins in their butter tarts !

Best and easiest butter tart recipe around. Thanks, Sandra.

they are easy I add raisins or pecans my family really enjoys them

So easy and delish!!
