These little tarts are held together with a delectable, sturdy shortbread crust, filled with smooth, vegan butterscotch, and topped with a chocolate ganache drizzle.
*Agar agar flakes perform much better over agar powder, even with proper conversion (3x flakes = 1x powder) the filling made with powder is unyielding in texture. Use flakes if you can!
** For vegan butter, I prefer Miyoko’s European Style Cultured Unsalted Butter though any vegan butter can be used.
***Tarts are best eaten the same day as filling the shortbread crust. Extended storage in an airtight container in the refrigerator will yield softer crusts. They'll still taste great, but the texture will be noticeably different.
