See these simple steps!
make sure the dough is seam side up!
The egg custard was so good, sweetness just right, and love the caramel and burnt on top!
The outer case was crispy but inside was slightly wet ( I guess due to wet egg custard has penetrate the pastry)
After this post, we are going to visit this place which famous for their Portuguese egg tarts ^_^. See you all in one week time.
** updated on 6th June 2014- After I tried the real Portuguese egg tarts at Macau that has thin and crispy crust. I realized that I have to reduce the pastry amount per tart in below recipe. Next time, I will try to divide maybe to 9pcs per pastry sheet.
