I Cook: Egg Tart

Yesterday, I spent the whole day with a good friend, Wan Lin, baking egg tarts!!! It took us the whole day to bake as we spent half of the time chatting and watching tv :p...

The idea of baking egg tart started with Wan Lin not knowing what to do with her remaining annual leaves :p... So, we decided to spend a day baking egg tart using a recipe she found some time ago. We, of course improvised a little ;)...

The result of our hard work :D...

The ingredients listed here yields about 18 egg tarts :)... Have fun baking...

- Castor sugar (60g)
- Full Cream Milk (200ml)

1. Mix 60g of castor sugar and 200ml of full cream milk in a pot.
2. Heat up the mixture in a low temperature until the sugar is melted.
3. Pour in the 3 whisked eggs into the mixture. Mix well.
4. Sift mixture to get rid of any foam

1. Sift 250g of flour in a bowl.
2. Add 150g of butter, 25g of icing sugar and 1 whisked egg gradually until well mixed.
3. Knead into a dough. I just have to include the picture of my "Halloween" dough... :p

4. Refrigerate dough for 30 minutes to 1 hour.
5. Roll out dough to about 1.5cm thick.
6. Cut dough with tart tin and gently press the dough into baking tray.

1. Pre-heat oven at 170 degree Celcius for 10 minutes.
