    Wildcat's Note:

    Very easy to make chinese style Egg Tart, you can put the leftover in the refrigerator for 3 days, you can also reduce the sugar used on the crust and the filling to fit your taste, what I have here is only lightly sweetened, hope you enjoy it!

      I have made Chinese egg custard tarts before using a recipe from a Chinese cookbook but decided to try this recipe. Like other reviewers I ended up with much, too much filling. I also raised the temp to 375. I used the left over filling as a base custard for an improvised bread pudding. I was disappointed with the waste of ingredients and time. Especially since the tarts were for my in-laws.

      That oven temperature is way too hot! I turned mine down to about 350-375 F. It takes a longer cooking time, but turns out great. The consistency is a little different than the ones I've had a dim sum places, but my husband is very happy with them. I also ended up with way more filling than dough. This recipe makes more than 21 custard cups plus leftover filling.

      This came out way too watery and I had loads of leftover filling. I think the amount of water added should be lowered dramatically.
