Maple Fudge Tarts

This recipe is taken from the 1981 Milk Calendar. As the long Canadian winter draws to a close, the sap begins to flow in the maple trees, producing a food which is uniquely Canadian- maple syrup. Its rich flavour contributes the sweetness to this recipe for maple tarts- so good after dinner or after school.
