Canadian Butter Tarts

As a Canadian, my recipes would not be complete without one of our specialties, Butter Tarts.
Since most tars are miniature pies, almost any pie filling could be dropped by spoonfuls into tart shells. They are easier to eat than a pie if you have a big crowd that's not for a sit-down meal.
