Egg Tarts

I'm so angry when drive 1 1/2 hours to Denver and yet unable to buy egg tarts as plan :(

So, I decided do it by myself and the result turned out not bad :)

Ingredients :

  • 3/4 cups brown sugar or confectioners' sugar
  • 3 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup butter or margarine
  • 1 egg,beaten
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/3 cups white sugar
  • 3/4 cups water
  • 5 eggs, beaten
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cups whole milk or canned evaporated milk

  1. Combine the white sugar and water in the saucepan and cook until sugar dissolved.Removed from heat and cool at room temperature.
  2. In a medium bowl, mix together brown sugar and all multi purpose flour,margarine, 1 egg vanilla extract and stir the mixture until forms a dough.
  3. If the texture too moist, add more flour and if too dry, add more margarine.
  4. shape dough into small dough and press the balls into the molds so that it covers the to bottom and goes up higher at the sides.
  5. Preheat the oven 400 F.
  6. Strain the 5 eggs through a sieve twice and whisk into the sugar mixture.Stir in evaporated milk and vanilla and fill the tart shells.
  7. Baked for 20 minutes in the preheat oven until golden brown and the filling is puffed up a little big.
