The Best Classic Canadian Butter Tarts - a keeper recipe!
The Best Classic Canadian Butter Tarts - there's a reason why we have a national obsession with these sweet, buttery, caramel-y tarts. I've sampled them in many places across the country and this thick pastry version is my favorite. Don't do the raisin debate, just leave them out if they are not your thing. Everyone should be able to enjoy them as they like them.

The Queen has received many horses as gifts from other heads of state. Soviet premier Nikita Khrushchev gave her a temperamental Akhal-Teke stallion, which frequently bit guests and was so high-spirited that only Prince Philip grooms would ride it. The beautiful black mare, Burmese was a present from The RCMP. When Burmese died in 1990, a few years after being retired from official duties, the Mounties presented the Queen with another horse - this time a gelding called James.
