These butter tarts are a staple in Westerhout holiday feasts and brings nostalgia to my taste buds. The women in my family have been making these tarts well before I was a sparkle in anyone’s eye. The recipe has been passed down from my Grandmother who had a way with sweets (like any great Dutch grandmother has). I attempted this recipe for the first time at this years Thanksgiving dinner. My first batch was a little crispy around the edges but still chewy on the instead. John and Shelley said they were a win! I had more luck with the second batch because I made the pastry dishes deeper. I used Jamie Oliver’s ‘Sweet Crust’ recipe which was easy to follow and very flaky. But it was a bit too sweet for this filling so next time I will combine it with Annabelle’s ‘Perfect Pie Crust’.
