Celebrate The Holidays with a Cardamom Milk Tart Recipe Made with Canadian Milk

By Gracie Carroll


When I was a kid, I only ever had two major concerns on the night before Christmas. Outside of how many presents I could expect to find under the tree in the morning, my two concerns included 1. If a plate of shortbread cookies and a tall glass of milk were ready and waiting for Santa, and 2. How Santa was going to get access to our house without a fireplace to crawl through.

Because Christmas cartoons are the best, don’t miss watching ‘A Glass for Santa’ by Dairy Farmers of Canada!

Although my worry for Santa has subsided over the years, milk and shortbread have remained two constant staples in the Carroll-family household, especially at Christmas. Since no one needs a recipe for how to pour a glass of milk, and shortbread cookies don’t require milk to make, I decided to share one of my favourite recipes to make over the holidays: The Milk Tart.

Similar to my family’s cherished Scottish shortbread recipe, a Milk Tart is simple to make and can easily be jazzed up with different flavours like rosemary, lemon, cinnamon and more! This year I’ve been especially loving everything cardamom flavoured so I decided to create a Cardamon Milk Tart recipe made with delicious Canadian milk.

This recipe has been adapted from Jamie Oliver and like he always says, always buy the best ingredients that you can afford. I love that in Canada we have access to quality Canadian milk that’s not only delicious and refreshing, but perfect for all of your cooking and baking needs, especially during the holiday season.

See below for how to make this Cardamom Milk Tart recipe for your next gathering with family and friends!
