Hello! We are Rachel Smith and Jean Parker, owners of Maple Key Tart Co. We're a boutique pop-up butter tart company operating in Toronto and Prince Edward County.


We make four varieties of butter tarts: classic, raisin, pecan, and maple walnut. All of our pastries are handmade using quality locally-sourced ingredients. We pride ourselves on our tart’s rustic, homemade look and wholesome taste.

Jean & Rachel

Sisters, Bakers, TV Hosts of Food Network Canada’s The Baker Sisters

Born in Windsor and raised in Bayside, a suburb of Trenton, Ontario, baking has been an integral part of life for as long as the sisters can remember; as kids their single mother started a butter tart business to supplement her income. Rachel and Jean spent hours helping their mother by filling tart tins, earning 10 cents a tin! 

After becoming mothers, Rachel and Jean had a similar idea and co-founded their business, Maple Key Tart co. The Baker Sisters earned their name by taking their mother’s award-winning recipe and baking in a few tweaks to create a truly delectable formula.

Butter Tart Selection


Our pastry is made using locally milled flour and vegetable shortening resulting in a tender, flaky, vegetarian crust. We delight in that all of our butter tarts are unique in shape, a testimony that each pastry is hand rolled and made with love.

“Thanks for those tarts ladies, they were truly TOP DRAWER. Fantastic. If I wasn’t trying to work on my bikini bod pre-vacation, I think I would have eaten all of them.” -James Houston

“I do bake butter tarts and have gone on a butter tart tour in the Stratford area (Mennonite baking) and can safely say that your tarts are the BEST I’ve ever had or made.” - Lisa McConnell-Patterson 

“My daughter in law treated us to tarts from you at the Markham show Sunday. VERY good! Our family rates butter tarts from new places we try- both crust and fillings. Yours rate 9.5 for both! (10 is reserved for MY sister’s tarts. HaHa.)” - Art Hale

“Beautiful, inspiring, and hard working! That’s how I would describe Rachel and Jean AKA The Baker Sisters! I had the pleasure of having them on The Parenting Show this past Sunday and we had a blast.” - Pina Crispo
