Dan Tart with shortcrust pastry

Chinese Egg Tarts using Christine’s recipe:


I have tried baking these using ready rolled puff pastry and it works just as well, although the puff takes a bit longer to cook.

The secret to these tarts is the oven temperature.  I have found that baking these using the bottom heat only ption without the fan function is best.  I also put the tarts on the bottom rack.  If you see the custard bubble then open the oven door a little to cool the tarts and deflate the custard.  Every oven is different so you may need to experiment a bit with your oven before you get it perfect.
