Ingredients: 6 tarts in a muffin tin with 7cm diameter, 4cm deep muffin cups

Tart crust
Cake flour (sifted)
70g
‡ Butter
40g
‡ Sugar
20g
‡ Salt
A little
Custard Cream:
◎Milk
250ml
◎Sugar
50 g
◎Cake flour (sifted)
25g
◎Egg yolks (large)
1
Butter (or margarine)
10g
Vanilla essence (plus rum if you like)
A few drops
Heavy cream
50ml
Your favorite toppings such as peaches, bananas, blueberries, figs, apple pie filling, etc.

Steps

1. In a bowl, mix together the ‡ ingredients. Then, mix in the cake flour.. Wrap the dough up in plastic wrap and let it rest for at least 30 minutes.
2. Divide the pastry dough into 6 parts and roll into balls. Shape into flat circles about 2~3 mm thick. Finally, evenly line muffin tins with the crust dough.
3. Using a fork, poke many holes into the bottoms of the crusts.
4. Bake the tart crusts on the lower level of a pre-heated 170 °C oven for 17 minutes.
5. Make the custard: Put the ◎ ingredients in a bowl and thoroughly mix together.
6. Strain at least twice and transfer to a pot. Heat on low heat while stirring with a wooden spatula.
7. When it thickens, quickly mix in the butter. When the custard becomes heavy, turn off the heat and add the vanilla.
8. Transfer the custard to a bowl and chill in the refrigerator. Just before filling the tarts with the custard, add the cream and use a whisk to whip it all together.
9. Fill the tart crusts with the custard and your desired toppings. I topped with blueberries and blackberries inside, and peaches on top.
