These little custard tarts are so easy and so delicious! They make the perfect treat for a party or afternoon tea. If you have feared custard tarts in the past, these will be your saving grace! You can also make this as one big tart. Enjoy x x



Preparation Time: 40 minutes
Cooking Time: 20 minutes
Makes: 12 servings



Ingredients

For the pastry:

200g or 1 1/3 cups of plain flour
100g or 1/2 cup of butter cubed

For the custard:

2 large egg yolks
1/4 cup (55g) of caster sugar
1 tsp vanilla extract
2 tsp of cornflour
3/4 cup of cream



Method
Start by making the pastry: rub the butter in to the flour until the mixture resembles fine crumbs. Add cold water tsp by tsp until there is JUST enough to bind the dough together in a soft ball. Wrap in clingfilm and put in the fridge to chill for 30minutes.
Preheat oven to 200 C and lightly grease a 12-hole cupcake tin. Roll pastry out on lightly floured surface. Using a glass or round cookie cutter, cut out 12 circles, rerolling the trimmings as necessary and use them to line the cupcake tin. You might need to roll out each circle a little more after cutting them so that they cover the cupcake holes.
Gently press the pastry in to each individual cupcake hole using your fingertips or knuckles so that you donít any holes in the pastry. Use extra pastry to fill in any holes you may have in your tart cases.
Whisk the custard ingredients together in a jug and 3/4 fill the pastry cases. Bake the tarts for 15-20 minutes or until the custard has set and the pastry is golden and crisp.
Let tarts cool in the tin for a while before removing. Serve warm or cold dusted with icing sugar.
