These Chocolate Walnut Butter Tarts are filled with a delicious buttery filling in a flakey pie crust!
I’ve teamed up with Land O’Lakes once again to bring you another out-of-this-world treat, just in time for the holidays!
Are you familiar with Canadian Butter Tarts? The filling is made up of brown sugar, butter, a little corn syrup, eggs and just a touch of flour to bind it all together. The texture is very similar to that of a pecan pie, but with a slightly different consistency.
It’s super easy to whip up this recipe because the filling calls for just 1/4 cup of butter. This means you can use Land O Lakes® Butter in Half Sticks, which are conveniently wrapped up in 1/4 cup measurements!
Once you have the butter tart mixture ready to go, just cut out some circles of pie dough and place them in a regular size muffin tin.
Butter Tart Filling Variations:
- The traditional butter tart calls for raisins, which might sound bizarre, but trust me, it’s good!
- Try browning the butter before mixing with the brown sugar for a more nutty flavor.
- Skip the walnuts or sub with pecans if desired.
- Swap maple syrup for corn syrup for a sweet treat!
There are literally so many ways to make butter tarts, but these Chocolate Walnut Butter Tarts are definitely a fun place to start!
In order to better distribute the walnuts and chocolate, I’ve opted to fill each cup with a little bit of both prior to adding the butter tart filling. This is great because you can really customize each butter tart to your liking.
Before serving, give the tarts a light dusting of powdered sugar for a pretty finishing touch, then promptly hide these from everyone in the house. Trust me.
They disappear real quick when everyone knows they’re there.
You’re going to love these, I just know it!
