蛋塔 (Egg Tarts) v.2

We made these with a puff pastry crust (cheated and bought that at the store) and also with a homemade crust. Most Chinese bakeries use the puffy crust now, but I kinda prefer the non-flakey one more sometimes. The picture shown uses the puff pastry crust, which is why it’s so pretty. I’m sorry that the overall picture looks all over-exposed. It was dark, so no natural light + camera phone = not the best quality. (This recipe makes ~12 egg tarts.)

(Filling)

3) (Filling) Mix all the filling ingredients together in a separate bowl.
