Directions

  1. Preheat an oven to 425 degrees F (220 degrees C).
  2. Combine the water and white sugar in a saucepan, and bring to a boil. Cook until the sugar is dissolved, remove from heat and cool to room temperature.
  3. Beat the eggs in a large bowl; add the evaporated milk and continue beating. Pour in the cooled sugar water and mix until well combined. Place the tart shells on a baking sheet. Strain the filling through a sieve, and fill the tart shells.
  4. Bake in the preheated oven until the filling has puffed a little bit, about 20 minutes.

This is not too sweet and use very few eggs to make 2 dozens. Very easy and popular among Asians. Thank you for posting!

just tried this recipe and indeed it is just perfectly sweet. but I used tenderflake frozen crust, and the top of the crust was all burned after 15minutes. i'll try to adjust the time or temperature next time.

It is an excellent recipe! but the baking time maybe too long for me. For me,18 mins is enough.
