Custard Tartlettes

My last minute entry to this month’s Monthly Mingle is hosted by Sally@My Custard Pie. The theme is custard and so I came up with a pretty simple recipe of tarts filled with custard..

I wanted to try the creme anglaise recipe from Sally’s post, but finally opted for the custard powder.. I was already running short of time and didn’t want a last minute disaster..


For the tarts

  • Flour – 100gm
  • Unsalted Butter – 50gm
  • Cold water- 1 tbsp
  • Salt- a pinch

For the custard

  • Custard powder – 3tbsp leveled
  • Milk – 500 ml
  • Sugar – 6 tbsp
  • Vanilla essence – 1tsp


For the tarts

  1. Sieve the flour with the salt.
  2. Rub in the butter and make a dough by using ice-cold water.
  3. Roll out the dough and cut into desired sizes.
  4. Press into tart cases and prick with a fork
  5. Bake in a preheated oven at 180 degree Celsius for 10 minutes
  6. Cool the tart cases.
  7. Turn the cases upside down to remove the tarts.

For the custard

  1. Mix the custard powder in 3 tbsp of milk from the 500 ml.
  2. Pour the remaining milk , vanilla essence and sugar into a pan and boil.
  3. Add the custard mixture and stir continuously until the mixture thickens .
  4. Remove from fire and allow to cool.

To Assemble

Spoon 1 or 2 tablespoons of custard into the  cooled tart shells.  Garnish with whipped cream , fresh fruits or cherries
