Butter cake tarts

This month's Aspiring Bakers#10-Easy as Pie just come in the right time, so I can practise the pie, tarts and quiches's recipes that i learnt from Academy of Pastry Arts, Malaysia.



Butter cake tarts



This time, i would like to share with you this special tart recipe, a tart with butter cake filling. I'm not sure whether or you have eaten this kind of tart before. I had this long time ago when i received a box of baby full month package from a friend.
