South African Milktart With an Easy Shortcrust Base
60 mins (prep 48, cooking 12)
13 ingredients
2 servings
This comes from my scrapbook of tried and tested recipes which I have used for the last 35 years. The base is really easy to make and instead of rolling you just 'press' the dough into a pie plate and bake for 10-12 minutes. The filling is made on the stovetop (or microwave) and no further baking is required. This is a truly delicious not too sweet custard type tart. Try it you will not be disapointed! Individual small milktarts can be made by pressing base into muffin or patti pan pans. Base can be baked in advance and custard made on the day.
