I woke up with butter tarts on my mind, but not the proper ingredients in the house to make them. So I googled butter tart squares and found a recipe on the Robin Hood flour website that seemed easy enough. Not only were they indeed easy enough, they were so easy that I'm adding them to my regularly baked treats rotation.

I modified the recipe based on the ingredients I had on hand and followed the method on the original recipe.

1/2 cup margarine
1/4 cup brown sugar
1 cup flour

3/4 cup brown sugar
1/4 cup margarine
1/4 cup corn syrup
1/4 cup honey
2 eggs
1 tsp vanilla extract
2 tbs flour
1/2 tsp baking powder


1. Preheat oven to 350°F. Grease and line an 8x8 baking dish with parchment paper.

2. For the base, beat margarine and brown sugar together in a bowl with an electric mixer. Add flour and beat until combined (mine had a cookie dough like texture). Spread evenly into prepared baking dish.

3. Bake for 20 minutes.

4. For the filling, beat margarine and brown sugar in a bowl until light and creamy. Beat in corn syrup/honey, eggs, and vanilla. Stir in flour and baking powder.

5. Pour over baked base, and return to oven for 25 minutes or until set.

Just out of the oven.

Unwrapped and ready for slicing.
