A butter tart is a small pastry tart, which generally consists of butter, sugar, syrup and egg. That is then filled into a flaky pastry and baked until the filling is semi-solid with a crunchy top. The Canadian Encyclopedia

Canadian Butter Tarts


I tend to freeze a batch of 12 butter tarts time, I make this recipe. So yes, they freeze very well!

My family goes crazy for these, so I will double this recipe often so that I can have 2 dozen ready to go!

Also, I just love making butter tarts in my air fryer these days. Because I have a baking rack in mine and it cooks them just the same way as your oven would. 

So people who do air fryer cookie recipes, request that you put parchment paper down.

However if you have a non stick air fryer. Like we do, then there is absolutely no need at all.

These are always in tin pie shells and come out with no mess at all.

Here is the the best Canadian Butter Tarts eva!
