My grandmother used to keep bees, and all of us tried to come up with new ways to use honey. This recipe is my contribution to the effort. I've been making them for about 20 years, with no complaints and lots of rave reviews.

Sandra's Butter Tarts

Rating: 4.5 stars 15
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.
