drank Pecan Pie by Culinary Teas

When I moved to the US and they didn’t have butter tarts, I was thoroughly disappointed. Pecan Pie was the closest thing I could find, but it just wasn’t the same. I did learn to quite enjoy it, though… and thanks to moraiwe, I got to try a sample of this tea!

It has the same nutty warmth that pecan pie has, which I certainly appreciated. And while it’s not super pastry-y, I felt that it did have some pie flavor, maybe a bit caramel-y? I quite enjoyed this tea, and I’m glad I have more to make a few more cups. Thanks, moraiwe!

Oh man, I’ve never had a butter tart! Do you have a recipe?

Hmmm, I’d have to check. I used to have my ex-boyfriend’s step-mom’s recipe, because she made the best butter tarts I’ve ever had. I used to make them for special occasions when I was living in Kansas.

I will see if I can dig it up!

Stephanie

Sweet, thanks. I can always just google it if its a hassle :)

There’s no buttertarts in the US? :O
It’s funny what you take for granted and what’s different in nearby countries.

Bizarre, right? Most of the time, I felt like I was still living in Canada, and then other times, it seemed so obvious that I was from a totally different country. Weird experience, for sure.
