It’ll be a tasty addition to the next thing you mail out. 

Canada Post has issued a sweet series of five colourful stamps depicting traditional made-in-Canada desserts, including the butter tart.   

Turns out the butter tart was first immortalized in a Royal Victoria Regional Health Centre Auxiliary cookbook almost 120 years ago as a way to help build a new hospital in downtown Barrie. 

Mrs. Malcolm (Mary) McLeod’s recipe was simply titled ‘filling for tarts’.
