I had some more puff pastry sitting in the fridge and thought I wanted to try making some custard tarts. I searched online for some recipes which involved me not having to run off to the store to get more ingredients.
For the custard I used this recipe and replaced the full cream milk with semi-skimmed milk. As I haven’t been able to find vanilla extract I used a little bag of vanilla sugar instead.
Grease a muffin tray, place on disks of puff pastry and pour on the cooled custard mix. Don’t overfill because the custard will puff up in the oven. Then I baked them for about 20 minutes at 200°C (400°F). They could have had a bit more cooking time to color the pastry, but as I use a gasoven I feared the pastry might get too dark. The pastry was fully cooked though.
These were just great. I love how I can make wonderful things with a roll of puff pastry :D. When I tasted the custard it was pretty sweet, as a tart it wasn’t too sweet. I might use a little less sugar next time.
