Egg Tarts

Wednesday, November 14, 2007

Everyone in my family loves egg tart,so these quick version are a hit when I 'm short on time.Belinda saying that she wants to eat egg tart.She were begging me to bake some egg atrt for her the whole day.Luckily,I had kept some frozen tart shells in my freeze.If not won't be able to write my post for my blog.I ran out of milk,so in this recipe I had replace the milk to whipping cream.Not bad.Still managed to bake a dozen of egg tarts today!

I just came upon your blog and was wondering what temperature did you set the oven at to bake the handmade shells and then with the filling. Thanks!
