Fireworks Citrus Spice Butter Tarts

I saw this recipe on Food Network's Insta reels and in an instant I knew we needed to try them. Who knew the Canadians were such butter fans!? I didn't know what a butter tart was until I saw that little video. So this dessert is pretty indulgent, flakey pastry, butter, sugar?  What could be better?!


  • 1 pre-made rectangle puff pastry sheet
  • 1/2 cup packed brown sugar
  • 2 Fireworks Citrus Spice Butter Bursts
  • 1 tbsp table or whipping cream
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 large egg
  • Juice of one orange


  1. Preheat your oven to 375F and position a rack in the lower third of the oven.
  2. Roll the dough onto a floured surface. Then cut out as many 4″ circles as you can, making sure to re-roll the scraps. You can also use a cup to help you create perfect circles.
  3. Next grease the muffin pan really well. Do two times with a cooking spray like Pam. Then place pastry circles into muffin pan and place back in the fridge until ready to fill.
  4. In a small saucepan, melt the Fireworks Citrus Spice Butter Bursts and brown sugar and orange juice. Remove from heat and stir in the cream and vanilla.
  5. Then let the mixture cool down until it is cool enough to touch (about 5 minutes) then whisk in the egg.
  6. Bake for 13-15 minutes or until crust is lightly golden around the edges and filling is bubbling.
  7. Let cool completely in the pan. Best way to remove the tarts from the pan is to place a cooling rack (upside down) on top and flip the pan over. Then individually flip each butter tart right side up.
  8. Set the tarts on a platter and have a feast!
