A Solid Ending

I mentioned previously that June was butter tart month in Ontario. I made a valiant effort to eat butter tarts at the beginning of the month (five days straight!) but didn’t manage to have one every day. However, I did manage to celebrate the end of June with a bang.

Toronto had an event called the Great Canadian Butter Tart Bake-Off at the end of June. It featured six pastry chefs each baking and serving a different style of butter tart. Since we can’t enjoy regular butter tarts, my sister decided we would have a butter tart bake-off of our own.

We made two types: one with chocolate pastry and chocolate drizzled on top and one made using maple syrup in the filling. The bake-off was extremely successful. We got to be both competitors and judges. My sister declared that both types of tarts won—the maple syrup won the classic category, while the chocolate version won the specialty category. I think this might be something we have to do every year.
