I was so happy with these butter tart squares. No one would know that they are gluten free and sugar free.
The short bread crust works great with the filling. The only thing that I will do differently next time is line the pan with parchment paper. Make it easier to get the squares out.
I hope that you enjoy them as much as I do !!

    • Okay lemon juice would work for the apple cider vinegar (needs the acidity) and tapioca should work but I’d cut the amount back to 1 tsp. I hope this works 🙂 I can’t even make them anymore because of all the eggs…
