Egg Custard Tarts Recipe

Printable Version of Recipe

      Yield: 6 servings
             Tart Pastry:
    1/4 c  Butter
    1/4 c  Lard
      1      Egg
      6 tb  Sugar
      2 c   Sifted all purpose flour.
              Egg Custard Filling:
      2      Whole extra large eggs
      3      Extra large egg yolks
      1 c    Whole milk
    1/2 c   Half and half
      1 c    Sugar
  Cream the butter with lard. Add egg and sugar. Beat
  well. Add flour, 1 cup at a time. The dough will be
  mealy. Work quickly with your hands to gather dough
  into a ball. Knead lightly so the mixture adheres. You
  may chill it at this point while making the filling.
  Egg Custard Filling: Be sure all the ingredients are
  at room temperature. Beat whole eggs at low speed with
  egg yolks well. Do not over beat, add sugar, then
  milk, then half and half. Let mixture rest 10 - 15
  minutes. Skim foam from mixture.
  Separate dough into 24 ball. Press each into 2 1/2
  inch tart shell to an even layer across the bottom and
  all the way up the side. Fill shell with filling
  almost to the top. Preheat oven to 300. Place tarts on
  cookie sheet and bake for 45 minutes. Cool for 10 - 15
  minutes. Loosen slightly by inserting a toothpick
  along the sides. Tart shell should un mold easily.
  Rhoda Yee's comments: It is important that the
  ingredients for the filling be at room temperature and
  beaten over a bowl of warm water. Cold ingredients
  will cause filling to separate during baking. By
  skimming off the foam, the custard will have a golden,
  creamy appearance with a velvety smooth texture which
  is a most unique and delightful gastronomic treat! Do
  not bake at high heat, this will cause the custard to
  bubble up like a balloon and burst.
