If you are on the hunt for the best individual custard tarts recipe, we found it. This old fashioned favorite is a keeper.
Once you learn the secret to making them at home, you will never buy store-bought again. They are perfect with a cuppa and if you loved the Portuguese Custard Tarts, you will be thrilled to try this recipe too.
The recipe that we are sharing with you comes with a video tutorial. According to the creator, the pastry is buttery and crumbly, and the filling is light, eggy and creamy.
When Keefy made up his custard tarts, he had leftover filling that could make a couple more tarts. As he ran out of the pastry, he finished with 4 tarts. You could make 6 with extra pastry.
At the end of the video, he has included a bonus creme brulee recipe that uses up the leftover custard. Be sure to watch until the end.
