Eric's Handcrafted Butter Tarts

 

I've written to ask about shipments to Canada and USA, so will update when I know. 🙂

 

Unfortunately, Eric has "not yet found a solution for shipping my tarts that makes economical sense for customers... sorry :("

                   . . . so, sadly, I shall remain butter-tart-less . . .

but he does have contactless pickup (clients order via email).

And . . . drumroll . . .

The full flavour list is:
classic
classic brulé
pecans
pecans dark choco
pecans raisins
walnuts
walnuts milk choco
walnuts raisins
all dressed (pecans, walnuts, raisins)
brazilian nuts
brazilian nuts raisins
brazilian coconut
hazelnuts dark choco

white choco coconut

cinnamon raisins
cranberries

skor bits

apple pie
golden raisins bourbon

Might be just as well, at least for your Canadian giftees.  Most of my Canadian friends have either a revered family buttertart recipe or a strong memory of the ideal buttertart that nothing else can ever measure up to. 

As a non-Canadian, I wouldn't mind trying a few of those non-buttertarts 🙃

True, @blue_dolphin, I'm particularly interested in butter tarts that aren't so sweet. @Anna N tells me that makes them Not Really buttertarts!

 

My brother got his butter tart gift today. I'll report back.

 

Ed and I are both bona fide Canadians.  And neither of us likes butter tarts.  So there...

I do!  I do!  I love butter tarts.

 

Well, to be frank, I love the idea of butter tarts. But it's been 40 years since I had one–who knows if I could handle the sweetness! 😜
