Kitchen Notes

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.
