Maple syrup tart recipes requested - ATTN: Montreal/Quebecois hounds

The family and I just got back from a swell trip to N VT that included in part a day trip to Montreal. For a second year in a row we made a bee line for the Jean Talon market and devoured several excellent treats among them a maple syrup tart. We were first introduced to this delicious dessert at L'Express.
I'd like to ask if anyone has a maple syrup tart recipe they can share? I've looked online and have found some but they don't look all that good.
My thanks to anyone who's willing to share!
I don't live in Quebec - I live in Ontario...I use a recipe that is more than 50 years old....
Maple Syrup Butter Tarts
2 large eggs
1 c. brown sugar
2 tsp white vinegar
1/4 tsp. salt
6 tlbs melted butter
1/2 c. "REAL" maple syrup - NOT corn syrup
Chopped Nuts - Raisens - or you can leave them plain.
Beat the eggs only until well blended - add br. sugar, vinegar & salt...mix together - add maple syrup & melted butter. Divide filling evenly between - 18 pastry lined muffin tins...I usually bake them at 375 - for about 10 minutes - and often tent them with foil for another minute or 2...I just keep a watch on them.
I hope you enjoy these as much as my family does.
If you bake these - let me know what you think.
If you Google 'tarte au sucre', you will find a wealth of recipes to explore...though I will say that the only reason I am suggesting that is that Eaglelake just beat me to the punch with that recipe from Ontario. I am also originally from Toronto and got that recipe from a pal of my Mom about 55 years ago...it is my 'go to' fave for this rich dessert whether in pie or tart form!
