As some of you know, Cher at The Only Girl held a give away for the Canadian wonder that is the butter tart.   In case you don't know what they are, go here.

I made this for Cher instead of doing actual work at work.

So anycalories, after A LOT of paperwork (on Cher's end (thanks again!!))--did you know that butter tarts need a passport?--I got them today!   And I couldn't wait to try one.  They're delicious!  They taste kind of like shoofly pie, but without the crumbly stuff on top.  BUT, these had raisins in them.  And I loves me some raisins.

I'm shocked and appalled that we do not have butter tarts in the US.  I plan on finding a good recipe and making some of my own.  And also some shoofly pie.  Hi, I'm going to be 300 pounds.

In completely unrelated news....I got an e-mail on Match last week from a guy whose user name is "LittleG".  He's 4'8".  I don't know what to do with that.


  1. Feed him some butter tarts and make him 5 foot wide. Just for laughs.

  2. So glad they finally arrived! You have received the first AND last of my butter tart prizes (thanks FDA for making things so G.D. difficult).

    Please give LittleG a pass . . .

  3. I absolutely LOVE the picture of Cher! That's hilarious. I only wish I would've won those dang buttertarts!!
