We're continuing the Cookin' n Canada segment with traditional Canadian sugar pastry originating in Northern Ontario, known as the Butter Tart.

One of the oldest recipes for these tarts supposedly first appeared back in 1915 in Northern Ontario. Due to the Butter Tart's filling of sugar, butter and eggs being similar to that of many other pastries such as the American Pecan Pie, the French-Canadian Sugar Pie or the Scottish Ecclefechan Butter Tarts the exact origin of the Butter Tart is unknown. However, Canadian's consider the Butter Tart to be an undisputed national favourite, despite the texture of the pastry's filling being constantly debated (should it have a runny filling or a firm filling?
