Hong Kong-Style Egg Tarts



Recipe, recipe, get the recipe!

Yield: Making 16 egg tarts of a tart pan

Ingredients
For the custard filling
• 4 medium eggs, beaten (reserve 2 tablespoons for your pastry dough)
• 3/4 cup hot water
• 6 tbsp. sugar
• 1/8 teaspoon salt (pinch of salt)
• 1/4 cup evaporated milk
• Dash of vanilla (optional)
For the pastry dough
• 2 cups cake flour, plus extra for dusting
• 1 stick unsalted butter, room temperature
• 1/4 cup powdered sugar
• 2 tablespoons of beaten egg
• 1/8 teaspoon salt
• Dash of vanilla (optional)

Instructions
• Pre-heat the oven to 400˚F / 200˚C
Make custard filling
• Melt sugar and salt with hot water. Mix until dissolved then let cool.
• Whisk eggs and then take 2 tablespoons out for the pastry dough. Stir in sugar water and also evaporated milk (if adding vanilla, add now). Stir and combine everything well.
• Strain the filling to ensure no lumps. Chill in the refrigerator while you make your pastry.
Making the pastry
• In a large bowl, sift flour, sugar and salt. Then add softened butter. Bring the mixture together with your hands, careful not to knead the pastry dough too much or you will make the pastry tough.
• Add the 2 tablespoons of reserved beaten egg and bring together until smooth. If the dough is too sticky, coating your hands with flour will help. Cover with plastic wrap and then refrigerate for 30 minutes, or until the dough is firm.
• Take the dough out and divide into 16 equal portions. Spray the tart pan with a light coating of oil. Take one portion of your dough and roll it into a ball and place in your tart shell. Press the shell into the pan with your fingers. Try to make the wrapper uniform in thickness and avoid a thick bottom. Repeat to finish all.
Baking the egg tart.
• Pour the custard filling to the shells until it is about 80% full. Bake for 15 to 20 minutes until the surface becomes golden brown and a toothpick can stand in the egg tart.
• Cool down for several minutes and then take the egg tarts out of the pan. Serve while still warm.

Enjoy!

    If we want the filling to be sweeter, we add more sugar to the water right?

    Nope. This is just normal egg tarts, can't see any Hong Kong style in it.

    I made these and they tasted amazing! Everyone at the party loved them and wanted me to make more. The dough however burnt before the filling was even done so after the filling was done, I cut off the burnt areas to make it look prettier

    The secret to a flaky pastry or bread is to simply add the butter into pieces, never melted. You have to mix it with the flour and other ingredients very fast. Never let it melt, put it in the fridge for at least one hour and do the pastry or bread very fast before the small pieces of butter start to melt. When they melt during the cooking process, they creat layers upon layers.

    I made these and they tasted good, but my tart shells were burning, while the middle filling was completely like water! I ended up taking the tart shells out and just pouring all the filling back into the trays to bake, and them scooping them back into the shells. It was a little watery and messy, and a bit too sweet, but if you do it right, I think it will come out fine:)
