  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C.)
  2. In a large bowl, mix flour and salt together. Blend in butter with a pastry cutter until mixture resemble coarse crumbs. In a small bowl, beat the egg with the cold water. Stir the egg mixture into the flour mixture to form a soft dough. Wrap with plastic and refrigerate for 30 minutes.
  3. Divide dough in half. Roll each half out to 1/8 inch thickness. Using a 3.5 inch (8.5 centimeter) fluted round cookie cutter, cut out 22 rounds. Press dough into lightly greased 3 inch tart pans.
  4. In a saucepan over low heat, stir water and sugar until sugar dissolves. Measure 1 cup plus 2 tablespoons of the resulting syrup and set aside to cool.
  5. In a large bowl, combine eggs, evaporated milk and vanilla. Beat until smooth. Strain into reserved syrup and mix well. Pour into prepared tart shells.
  6. Bake in the preheated oven for 20 minutes, or until pastry is golden brown and filling is set.

This recipe was alright. I didn't feel like it had the same taste that you find in most dim sims resturants, which was what I was looking for. I also, didn't think it was very sweet like most re...

When I made this recipe, I had twice as much dough as filling, so I ended up making two batches. The first night I took the time to roll out the dough and make the individual tarts, but it took ...

Very sweet but tastes good. I have only made custard part, without the pastry - by pouring the mixture into a pan. After making this recipe a few times I've found that cutting down on the suga...

I loved it but I followed some of the recomendations and cut the sugar down by half and froze it for 30 seconds just cause I forgot bout letting it cool. Defintely needs more cooking time (round...
