Stop #24 on the Butter Tart Tour was at The Whistle Stop Cafe in Peterborough. I was not at the Whistle Stop Cafe, I got their tarts from the Butter Tart Taste Off. I don’t know why I have not made it into The Whistle Stop, I pass by it several times a week. They are better known for having over 100 different kinds of poutine.
First Impressions – very big, looked kind of hard/tough
– crust was very tender, almost shortbread like nice flavour
– filling was very runny, sweet and seemed to taste of caramel
This was a good tart. It was much better than it looked upon first impressions. I also picked up one of their raisin butter tarts, which I have not had yet. When I get into Whistle Stop for some poutine, I will definitely have a tart for dessert.
