Firstly Happy Mother's Day to all the mothers out there.
I made these tarts shell for Orange Chocolate Cheese Tart, which I'll be sharing in the next recipe.
These tart shells were so crunchy,also easy to make.Can make tart shell one day before the filling.Store it into airtight container.Here's the recipe:
I adapted from Alex's Goh cookbook, but I modefied a bit.
Ingredients: (+- 110 shells)
500 gm flour( I used superfine flour),sifted
300 gm butter
4 tbsps sugar
2 egg yolks
80 gm cold water
Mix sifted flour with sugar.
Add butter ,mix it until crumbly.
Add in egg yolks, mix it again.
Then add cold water, and mix it, to form a dough.
Shape the dough into a ball and press it flat.
Wrap it with cling film and refrigerate for 30 minutes.
Ok, I'll show , how to shape it into a shell.
Flattened the dough, rest it into fridge.After 30 minutes........
Shape it into a small ball, press it into a mould.
Use finger tip to press it towards the mould, to get the wavy pattern.
Almost done.Need some touch up..hahaha
Use plastic knife, trim the edges.
Use a fork, prick some holes. And ready to bake.Bake 180 C for 15 - 18 minutes.
Take out from the mould, let it cool.Store it into airtight container, And ready for the fillings
