portuguese egg tarts ( pie susu for indonesian)

To be honest, i dont know that there is this kind of tarts in indonesia but you guys call it pie susu and its pretty famous in Bali . all i know , this is a cantonese cuisine because people that went to visit Hongkong wud bring em as a gift . i loveeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee it soooo much !
a week ago , i finally tried the indonesian version . and its basically the same things . i dont know which version is the original hehehehe regardless there is always a stir between where some foods originally come from ,right???
there are tons of this recipes at the internet . below is mine . the shell is crispy and tasty because i use a lot of butter and the filling is so sweet because i use evaporated milk instead condensed milk or UHT milk. as always , i warn you girls to ask for my permission if u want to repost this version egg tarts of mine .

so here we go :) lets make it ,girls <3333

tarts ingredients

  • 1 egg
  • 2 tablespoons cold water
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour

custard ingredients
