DIRECTIONS

  • Measure three-quarters of the milk into a saucepan, add the cinnamon, cardamom, nutmeg and heat to just below boiling point. Set aside to infuse for about 15 minutes.
  • Mix together the remaining milk, egg yolks, flour,cornstarch, sugar and baking powder. Strain the spiced-flavoured milk, pour into a clean saucepan and cook, stirring, until the custard thickens. Remove from the heat, and whisk in the butter and vanilla. Cool to room temperature.
  • Whisk the egg white stiffly and fold into the custard. Pour into the pastry shell and bake in a preheated oven at 375°F and bake for about 20 minutes more, until the filling is set. Slide the hot tart onto a plate, sprinkle with ground cinnamon whipped cream and serve warm or chill to serve cold.
