A Recipe to Share- Prize Butter Tarts

Hello All-

I thought I’d share a new favorite recipe of mine. Honestly, I have yet to try these pies myself; since they were gone lickity-split the last time I made them! Considering that I had several native-Canadians ask me for the recipe, I am thinking that they are pretty good. So, I figured that I would share the recipe with all of you too!

So, without further ado:


Prize Butter Tarts
(From the West Point Lighthouse in PEI)

1 cup brown sugar
1/3 cup butter, melted
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 egg, beaten
2 Tablespoons milk
10 to 12 unbaked pastry tart shells (I used froen ones and they worked great!)

Mix together sugar, butter and vanilla. Stir in egg and milk. Pour into prepared tart shells and bake at 400-degrees for 15 minutes.


Yup, they are that easy! A little background info…the hubby and I had our honeymoon at the lighthouse where this recipe is from. At the time, we didn’t know what butter tarts were, so we never tried them. Now that we live in Canada and are well versed in how yummy they are, I cannot wait to someday return to PEI and try them first-hand!!

Cheers!
Sharon
