My wife and I are in Seattle and desperately searching for butter tarts. Can anyone help?

Why not make them yourself?  They're incredibly simple, particularly if you've got access to premade puff pastry....

Yes, that would be a great idea, alas we have no oven available. We spent a couple days in Vancouver, BC where the butter tarts are ubiquitous then came here. Bakers in Seattle look at us like we have 3 heads when we mention them.

They are a Canadian thing, I've never seen them here.

My sister lives in Seattle and also reports no butter tarts.  

They are also a Michigan thing pastrygirl, but Michigan can be somewhat Canada-like.
