YUM! I doubled the recipe because hubby loves butter tarts and I just didn't have the time to make them today. It doubles very well (in a 9 x 13 pan)! I used a little smash of cinnamon in the crust and rum extract instead of vanilla in the filling. I might try maple extract next time. Overall, an excellent square!

Great square! I just added it to my traditional list of Christmas baking. It was fast and easy to do and if you refrigerate it for an hour or so you can cut it real nice into 1" squares. I like to make treats like these bite size so you can try several different ones from a cake & cookie platter. Thanks for sharing.

I made two batches (one with raisins, one without) and both were way too sticky to cut and remove from the pan. I tried baking them an extra 10 minutes, let them thoroughly cool and tried again with a tad more success. Tasted good but I had to use them as ice cream topping, not squares.
