Canada Day Butter Tarts

Today marks the 143rd anniversary of the Confederation of Canada. There will be lots of celebrations (even Queen Elizabeth is here for it) and lots of fireworks displays tonight. There will also be lots of eating - barbeques etc but my favourite is the traditional butter tart. Made of mostly butter and brown sugar plus eggs, they usually have either raisins or nuts added. I vote for the nuts. Happy Canada Day!

I've been distracted, so haven't visited over the long holiday weekend (yay!)
Does that mean all the raisin ones can be mine?
