Egg Tart

my 1st attempt on egg tart..neva thought i would be doing this! OMG!
bee likes them very much though i think there's still lots to be improved
crust bit too sweet and could be thinner, filling overbaked..hahhaha
Thanks to darling keiko for the advise!

55g icing sugar
225g plain flour
1 egg,whisked slightly
1/2 teaspoon vanilla essence

140g milk
80g sugar
2 eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla essence


Rub the butter with the flour till resemble bread crumbs.
Add sugar.
Add egg and vanilla essence.
Make into a pliable dough.
Wrap with cling wrap and refrigerate for 20 minutes.

Remove the dough from the fridge and cut into equal portion.
Press the dough into the moulds.(No need to grease.)
Pour the custard mixture into the moulds.
Bake for about 15-20 minutes at 200°C till custard puffs up.
Remove from oven and leave on cooling rack.
Unmould with care when slightly cooled.
Serve warm or chilled.

Heat milk and melt sugar in it.
Whisk the eggs and vanilla essence.(not till frothy.)
