It’s true! Butter tarts are Canadian through and through. In fact, these crumbly, almost shortbread-like pastry shells-oozing with butter, sugar, syrup and eggs – date back to the early 1600s, when they provided sweet sustenance for our pioneers. There’s a great deal of variation today – some bakers add raisins, others pecans – but it’s safe to say they’d all satisfy the most discerning sweet tooth.
