Cheese Tartlet

Though my girl loves tarts especially egg tart, I hardly made tarts because my skill in molding the pastry to the tart tin is terrible.  Due to my warm hands, the pastry often melts before I even had a chance to do it properly plus I like my crust to be thin too so it became really challenging.  The sticky dough thus frustrates me a lot as I cannot do a good job.

I was eyeing on this tart press for the longest time but it was really expensive here.  I did enquire with an online shop in Malaysia but it turned out that they have big difference in quote to a Singaporean and to a Malaysian.  After conversion, there is no difference if I get it in Singapore.    

Anyway, recently during my KL trip, I managed to buy a tart press and I was delighted.

ET’s Cheese Tartlet greeted me this morning during my morning FB read. 
With this cool wet weather, I guess it will be the perfect time to bake some tarts for my princess and since I have some cheese blocks in the fridge, Egg tart will have to wait.


Findings: This recipe is so easy to put together and it tasted yummy too.  Going to share some with my neighbour.

The crust is crunchy and not too sweet.

I have added in some berries jam so my cheese mixture was just nice to fill up all 49 pcs.  


Thanks ET for sharing such a nice recipe.
