When a craving hits, I must satisfy it. Resourcefulness is the key!
I happened to have some ready-made pastry tartlets in the freezer…and the rest is magic!
- 2 frozen, ready-made pastry tart shells
- 1 heaping tablespoon of coconut palm sugar
- 1 and a bit tablespoons of maple syrup
- 1 teaspoon butter
- 1/8 teaspoon vanilla
- 1/8 teaspoon vinegar
- pinch of salt
- 1 teaspoon ground flax [or ground Chia]
- 3 teaspoons water
Place each tart shell in a small ramekin or small microwaveable dish. Microwave on high for 30 seconds. [In a pinch, you could use soda crackers!] Let cool while you prepare the filling. If you like raisins or nuts, sprinkle a few on the shell.
In a Pyrex cup or microwaveable bowl, mix all the remaining ingredients. Microwave on high for 30 seconds. Stir. Microwave on high for another 30 seconds. Stir well. Pour the filling equally into the two tart shells. Return to the microwave for another 30 seconds or more. This depends on the power of your microwave. Watch that it doesn’t boil over.
Cool and DEVOUR.
I completely forgot to take a photo of the butter tart because hubby and I couldn’t wait to eat them. Next time I make them, I’ll try to snap a photo before we eat them!
