Maple Butter Tarts

These favorite Canadian treats get an Atlantic Canadian twist with the addition of maple syrup! We’ve added plump golden raisins because we both love them but if you’re not a fan simply leave them out! We used our favorite pastry crust for this batch but you can also use a tart dough or even a premade tart, it gives the tart more stability, they are super flaky with the pie dough. We also used flour to make our filling a bit “thicker” but if you like the oozing type of filling omit the flour.
