I grew up with my mom making homemade butter tarts with any leftover pie crust pastry that she had. To me they were mostly a holiday treat, but who says you have to wait until Christmas to enjoy these delicious and oh so easy to make gluten free butter tart squares. My husband is addicted to these squares and my gluten free matrimonial squares so try either treat, and enjoy!
- 1/2 cup organic butter, softened
- 1/2 cup Wholesome Sweeteners Organic Sugar
- 2/3 cup brown rice flour
- 1/3 cup potato starch
- 2 tbsp organic butter, melted
- 1 cup organic light brown sugar
- 2 organic eggs
- 2 tbsp brown rice flour
- 1/2 tsp baking powder
- 1 tsp Simply Organic Vanilla Extract
- 1/8 tsp sea salt
- 1 cup organic raisins
- 1/2 cup chopped pecans or walnuts (optional – I didn’t put any in)
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line a 9″ square pan with parchment paper or grease it very well with butter.
To make the crust, beat the butter and the sugar together until smooth. Add the flour and potato starch and stir just until combined. Press into the prepared pan and then bake for 15 minutes. Let crust cool slightly before adding filling.
While the crust is baking, mix together the filling ingredients. Stir the brown sugar into the melted butter and then add the remaining ingredients.
Bake at 350 degrees until top springs back when lightly touched, approximately 22-25 minutes.
Let cool completely before cutting into squares. Enjoy!
