Peanut Butter Butter Tarts and Beautiful Boys...
Always in the mood for peanut butter, and frequently thinking about my mother's butter tarts, I decided to blend the two.
Mine will never come close to Mom's, but I made these my own. Rich and sweet, they bring back memories of my childhood. Even now, at 30, I still ask her to make them when we're going to be together. There's just something about baked goods from your mother that can't compare to anything else. I'm convinced there's a little extra love baked in when she's making something for me. I hope my boys feel the same about me and my baking when they grow up.
The smell of sugar and warm chocolate, baking cakes or brownies, chocolate chip cookies and butter tarts. I hope that in 30 years, when they're sitting in their homes, they smell something sweet and think of me; about the love that went into everything I made.
