Butter Tarts are a classic Canadian sweet treat.

While this recipe uses pecans, feel free to use other additions in place of the pecans such as raisins, walnut pieces or leave the butter tarts plain.

Pie Dough: This recipe is designed for pies that have a wet filling, such as pumpkin, coconut cream, butter tarts and other such pies.

You can make a half recipe if you just need a single crust.

The flaky crust combined with a rich center makes these little tarts a satisfying snack to serve and eat.

They look so appealing on a pretty platter and make a great finger-food dessert when you’re entertaining. They also freeze well.

Sometimes we want to cook something easy and quick and most of all delicious.

Yesterday I didn’t know what to cook for lunch and I came up with this Pecan Tarts which turned out to be a success!
