Growing up, butter tarts were a family favorite. You used to be able to find them at almost every local grocery store. Now given that these tarts are basically pure butter and sugar, I’m not surprised you can’t find them anymore in grocery stores. Good thing my mom still had her recipe handy so we can make treats at home!

I think it goes without saying that this recipe isn’t the healthiest you will ever make.
