Cantonese Egg Tarts

Nampak kat rumah Ika Bangkok & kenalan baru mama Cikgu Zana yg menetap di Batu Pahat Muar. Ni kalau tak silap mama, kalau nak ke kampung my grandmothers mesti lalu Batu Pahat dulu.. My late grandmother kat Semerah ni sebelah my father, sebelah my mother plak pat Sungai Balang.Sekarang sejak my grandmother sebelah my mother dah ikut anak2 x pernah lagi pergi sana. Miss masa kecil2 dulu selalu turun kampung :(

Okay... Oleh sebab dah lama x makan egg tarts ni, mama cuba lah resipi ni... Mula2 pastry agak lembik... mungkin kerana telur yg mama gunakan besar... perap kan dalam 1/2 jam .

Suka sangat2 sebab pastry crunchy & custard yg lembut & lemak. Anak2 mama suka sangat2.. lagi2 shasha... Tq Cikgu Zana & Dik Ika kerana sudi berkongsi resipi di blog masing2. Akan buat lagi sebab anak2 suka makan :) Mama C&P resipi dari rumah cikgu Zana yer. TQ

Ingredients of crust:
225 gm plain flour
125 gm butter
55 gm icing sugar
1 egg, whisked
a dash of vanilla extract

Ingredients of custard:
3 eggs
110 gm caster sugar
225 gm hot water
85 gm evaporated milk
1/2 tsp vanilla extract

Method (making crust):
1.Place butter at room temperature until softened. Cream the butter and sugar with an electric mixer over medium speed until the mixture is smooth, fluffy and light in color.
2.Add in whisked egg, half at a time, beat over low speed. Add vanilla extract, mix well.
3.Sift in flour in two batches, scraping down the sides of the bowl between additions with a spatula, and make sure all ingredients combine well. Knead into dough. (see picture)
4.Roll out the dough to a 1/2 cm thickness. Cut dough with a cookie cutter that is just a bit smaller than your tart tin in size. Line dough in the middle of tart tins, one by one. Lightly press the dough with your thumbs, starting from the bottom then up to the sides. While pressing the dough, turn the tart tin clockwise/anti-clockwise in order to make an even tart shell. Trim away any excess dough.
Method (making custard):
1.Add sugar into hot water, mix until completely dissolved.
2.Whisk egg with evaporated milk. Pour in sugar water. Mix well.
3.Sift egg mixture to get rid of any foam into a tea pot. Carefully pour egg mixture into each tart shell.

Method (baking tarts):
1. Preheat oven to 200C. Position rack in lower third of oven. Bake tarts for 10 to 15 minutes until the edges are lightly brown.
2. Lower the heat to 180C. Keep an eye on them. Once you see the custard being puffed up a bit, pull the oven door open about 2 to 3 inches. Bake for another 10 to 15 minutes until the custard is cooked through. Just insert a toothpick into the custard. If it stands on its own, it’s done.
