oh my word!!! I didn't pin this last night when I was looking and drooling- I just went straight to printing out the recipe. Made it this afternoon and it is to die for! Jesse and I ate 1/2 of the pan- I am putting it on my baking list for Christmas and will probably make it 5 more times before then because it is so easy and fabulously delicious!!!

Salted Caramel Shortbread Squares

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.

Classic Canadian Butter Tarts are near the top of my personal list of can't resist baked treats. The sweet, caramelly filling with a thick super flaky pastry .you can also use pecans, walnuts or even chocolate chips.

Award-Winning Butter Tarts from Food.com: Butter tarts are a Canadian tradition. Waaaay back in the 1970s, a national contest here in Canada concluded that these butter tarts, originating from Wilkie's Bakery in Orillia, Ontario, were the best. Add a sprinkle of toasted walnuts when you add the raisins, if you wish, or use only walnuts if you don't like raisins.
