I like to try new different recipes.Same goes with this tart shell.Although I got my favorite tart shell recipe here , I still like to try other version.
Both making methods are different.The taste? , quite
I've made fruit tarts before, before I started my blog. I used whipping cream and instant custard for the filling.I'll share the recipe, if I make it again, I will.....
At the moment I'll share this recipe.
And for this version,it's a little eggy for me.But ,for those who like egg, can try this.

Here's the recipe from Think Out Of The Shell, Chef Gina Tan
For Pastry:
130 gm butter
65 gm icing sugar
250 gm plain flour, sieved
30 gm egg

Cream butter and icing sugar until fluffy.
Add in egg and sieved flour until dough is formed.
(Here, I rested the dough for 6 hours in fridge,need to ferry the kids in and out,then dinner.I started to bake after my dinner.)
Take the dough out from fridge,thaw it.
Press the dough into tart moulds and bake in preheated oven at 180C for 15-25 minutes or until cooked.
Take out from moulds and let it cool.Store it into airtight container.

These look delicious! I love eating tarts but not the process of making the crust and putting them into the moulds! I find that very tedious:P
