Maple Syrup Tarts

At Faul Farms Natural Fed Beef I purchased steak and hamburg and Snyder Heritage Farms Maple syrup. The steak was really good, you do have to cook it to a pink stage due to the fact there is less fat in the meat. The hamburg meat was also very good. I will take photos when we have the rest of the meat. The syrup has a bit of a smoke flavor to it. We thought maple tarts might be good so I looked for a recipe and found this one on at Dinner with Julie. Well, what can anyone say.... MORE PLEASE.

Maple Syrup Tarts


2 eggs
1/2 cup packed brown sugar
1 1/2 cups pure maple syrup
2 tbsp. softend butter
pinch salt
1 cup toasted chopped pecans (optional) (did not use in the maple tarts)
Sour Cherry Jam
Peach Jam

Slivered Almonds

Pie Dough Ingredients:

The Perfect Pie Dough

Follow the ingredient list and the directions to make the pie dough. Or the pie dough of your choice.


Preheat oven 400ยบ.
On lightly floured surface roll pastry to 1/4" thick.
Cut circles about 4".
Press into un-greased muffin tins.
Set aside.
In medium sized bowl whisk filling ingredients together.
Fill the prepared tart shells 2/3 full.
Bake for about 20 minutes. I found about 22 minutes worked well.
Let them cool in the pan.
While still warm run a knife around the edges to loosen them.
If they are a little stuck return to oven for a minute to soften again to remove from pan.
Place on cooling rack.
Makes about 24 tarts.

We also made sour cherry and peach with almond tarts. Added Sour Cherry Jam and Peach Jam and topped with slivered almonds. Baked the same as the maple tarts.

I'm crazy about maple syrup- Nothing else is quite like it! These look so luscious, gooey, and incredible, what a treat for those with a serious sweet tooth.

I just tried to make these last week. They're so good and I really love the crust that you used. I will definitely make these again. :)
