Better an egg this year than a chicken next year.

I made a small batch of Egg Custard Tarts. The boys love the tarts and can eat three at a go. This is a sure-fire way to get them snacking frequently. It takes about 35 minutes to make a small batch of eight tarts.

Here are the ingredients to make 8 tarts:
- 1 egg, beaten
- 1 tablespoon + 2 teaspoon superfine (castor) sugar
- 1/2 cup milk
- 8 tart shell
|Crack the egg into the milk.
|Add the sugar into the mix.
|Beat the mixture until it is smooth.
|Pour the mixture into the tarts, leaving 1/4″ at the top.
|I use a toaster oven to make the tarts. For some reason I have never been consistent using the conventional ovens. Anyway, pre-heat the oven to 425 F. Bake the egg custard tarts for approximately 10 minutes and the reduce the heat to 400 F. Bake for another 10-15 minutes until the custard has set.
|You will know it is done when the knife placed in the middle comes out clean.
