It's Christmas Eve day.....

Look how nicely a dozen pack into a little card box.

The Butter Tarts.... have to have 'em every year. They are my BIL's only request if someone asks what he wants for Christmas.

and here is a quick little tip ... after they have cooled a bit ... (but only for a few minutes) .. run the sharpest edge of your tiny spatula gently around each in order to facilitate easy removal later when they are fully cooled . Sometimes there is a tiny bit of excess that bubbles over and it "bakes" the tart onto the tin. That can be the ruin of a tart when you try to remove it later. But, this trick should ensure that none are ruined. However.... since we feel we can't gift any of the "wrecked" ones... who cares? ..hahahhah ............ more for us. And this batch ?? was one of the best ever .... Cranberry Butter Tarts.

I will post the recipe later.
