I was so surprised when I found out that there is hardly any butter in buttertarts! In The Netherlands we have buttertart that has plenty of butter in it, hence the name buttertart.
But I love these little tarts, I love the coconut in there, the raisins, this is one the yummiest treats and a great comfort food. Of course you can get nice and lazy and buy ready to bake tart shells or if you have some frustration to get rid of, make your own dough, it works beautiful for my frustration. Use the roll pin and put all your frustration in the kneading and the rolling; it works very therapeutic form me.
