Special Day (Part 2)

It was a fun but tiring day as we were baking egg tarts for the whole afternoon.

Those were easy, simple steps to bake egg tarts and you should try it at home too. i got this recipe from my colleague, Winnie (hehe.. harlo Winnie, thanks ya :D)

After the 1st batch of 11 egg tarts were done (actually there were only 10 successful ones, 1 was scrapped due to the pastry inside was not fully cooked), there were still much fillings left. So we decided not to waste it and we did the 2nd batch by preparing the pastry again. The 2nd batch turned out to be more successful!


Getting all ingredients and baking items ready
We can make 11 egg tarts with the recipe provided

Me and my tarts (1st try)

2nd batch looks nicer with the amount of butter used accordingly to the recipe

There is one problem with the final product:
After one night, the crust of the tarts had turned soft and not as crispy as the day before. I still do not know what is the reason. Perhaps I should keep them in air-tight container instead of exposing them to air after cooling down from oven? Or the recipe is incomplete with some secret ingredients removed? Tak taulah...

Baking egg tarts is much fun. I definitely going to do it again soon!! keke...... 





Anyway, this is a special day as a year ago, we decided to start this relationship together. Happy Anniversary Dear. :*)
