Grandma's Butter Tarts

Christmas baking in November reminds me of my mother-in-law. When our kids were small, she would always ship a small box of Christmas baking to us with an impressive variety of sweets, since she lives on the other side of the country.

These tarts were always in the box. They are so easy to make it would be a shame not to bake them. I did use store-bought pastry shells but you can make your own pastry, if you are that way inclined. I’d also recommend using the medium-sized tarts because it makes more.
