Canadian Butter Tarts

One of my kids is going to visit someone and I have taught them to never go anywhere empty handed. So, I baked and wrapped some butter tarts for them to take along.
These are some of the best things you will ever taste.  You simply line muffin tins with a good pie crust and then make this filling:
  • ½ cup lightly packed brown sugar
  • ½ cup corn syrup
  • ¼ cup butter, melted
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • ¼ tsp salt
Bake at 425 degrees for about 15 minutes.  Let them cool before removing from the pan.
We are at the height of tomato season and are eating them several times a day.  One of my favorite things to do is bake a loaf of white bread.

And make tomato and mayonnaise sandwiches.  Simple but oh so good.

These Ball jars are new at Sur La Table this Fall.  We are off to one of our favorite festivals and I can't wait!
