Hello...yes I'm still alive:)
I bought some foam to make something and I had the leftover piece standing in a roll in my sewing room. It didn't take long for someone to move in....
She gave me the look when I suggested that she get out:)
I actually baked something today. This is a big thing as I never bake unless forced to for family gatherings etc.
I was looking in my kitchen cupboard for something and rediscovered an unopened 540ml can of Canadian Maple Syrup that was given to my son on a photo shoot he was doing for a course on food photography. I'm embarrassed to say how many years ago that was....maybe 2004....eeeek.
I also discovered I had 2 packages of Tenderflake mini tartets...36 tart shells in total... in my freezer. I think I bought them last Christmas.......as I said I don't bake much...sigh. I also had a half a package of walnuts.
I surfed around and found a few simple recipes for tarts using maple syrup. I chose this one because I had all the ingredients in house...Canadian Maple Butter Tarts....
This recipe is for 12 regular size tarts but I used the 36 mini tarts and it worked out perfect.
OMG!!!!! They are delicious.......yummy!!!!! I thought they'd be super sweet but they weren't...a nice creamy. texture too. Sometimes butter tarts can be too dry.
It's a beautiful sunny day here today so I'm taking my book and a cup of tea outside to enjoy it. There won't be too many left before you know what.
