I’ve been wanting to try this recipe since I saw this from Yummy magazine but I keep putting it off since I can’t find puff pastry here and I don’t want to make it from scratch either (I tried making it before, I failed and am not yet ready to try again..it wasn’t easy for me).

Instructions

CRUST:

  • Preheat oven to 350 F degrees.
  • Prepare the crust by creaming butter and sugar until light.
  • Add the egg and flour and continue mixing until well-blended.
  • Form into a log and divide into 6 or 12 pieces.
  • Put one ball of dough into each muffin cup; press to fit bottom and sides. Set aside.

FILLING:

  • Make the filling by combining all the ingredients for it except for the egg yolks in a heavy saucepan.
  • Cook over medium heat stirring constantly until thick and creamy.
  • Remove pan from heat and slowly add egg yolks ( it's best to temper the yolks first by adding a little of the mixture to it to avoid lumps) while stirring gently.
  • Strain the filling then pour into the crust; bake in the oven for 25-30 minutes.
  • Tops must be burnt but the filling should still be quite soft.
