Yes, another post about butter tarts! As I am sure you can tell, I am a little obsessed with butter tarts. I am not quite half way through the Butter Tart Tour ( I will finish it!) and have photographed, tasted and posted about each one. Some amazing (like Doo Doo’s!), some good, and some not so good.
I have already done a post on Doo Doo’s Bakery, when I posted about their butter tarts, one of my favourites, from the Butter Tart Tour. Doo Doo’s was our very first stop, let me tell you, very few have come close to theirs! I was so impressed with their tarts I have made several, yes several trips back for more! The one that really caught my attention was the Maple Bacon Tart. I did mention this tart on the Tart Tour post, but this tart is so amazing it deserves a post of its very own!
The day of the tour I brought one of the bacon tarts home to try. I honestly was not very optimistic, but it sounded interesting and it had bacon in it so I had to try it. I was pleasantly surprised and overjoyed on how delicious this tart was. Honestly, I have been raving about it to anyone that will listen, telling them it is worth the drive to Bailieboro. When they hear that there is really bacon in them, they turn their noses up and look at me like I am some sort of weirdo (well I might be, but not about this). This is something that you can’t knock until you try it! The tart is amazingly sweet and the salt from the bacon brings it to a whole new level. I have been trying to get these tarts for about a month! Every time I went they were sold out, though I never went away empty handed or disappointed, I always picked up a few other treats. Finally I made an order to be sure to get some.
This Tart won Best Specialty Tart
Just look at that, it looks perfect
Check out the perfectly amazing centre, its just the right consistency.
Runny, yet stiff enough to hold, so the whole thing doesn’t run down your arm…
Just a bit runs down your fingers!
It’s a thing of beauty, really.
I also picked up some of their Raspberry Coconut Tarts, I know my Poppa loves them so I picked him up a few. I picked up more than a few because I had to try…
These were delicious!
