Do you find these elegant?  It tastes simply fantastic and it's easy to prepare too. 


This recipe calls for digestive biscuits, but you can use any of your favourite biscuits, such as ginger cookies or something similar.  Just let your imagination and creativity take over.


Recipe Source (TODAY, 23 July 2011)
Peach Tart in a Glass (serves 6 to 8)

For the biscuit base
:

100g digestive biscuits or another similar biscuit
40g melted butter
1 tsp fine sugar


- Place the biscuit, melted butter and sugar in a small food processor and blitz to a fine sand.  Press into the base of several serving glasses up to 8mm thick and refrigerate. (I misread this part, you will see I have more pudding than cookies)

For custard:
1 cup evaporated filled milk
1 cup water
3 tbsp custard powder
1/2 cup fine sugar (will reduce next time, I find it too sweet)
1/4 tsp fine salt


- Place all the custard ingredients into a small saucepan and bring to a boil, stirring constantly.  Boil gently for 2 mins (the custard will thicken) and then transfer to a wide bowl.  Cool, then spoon 3 tbsp into each glass.


- Arrange diced peaches on top and refrigerate for at least 3 hours before serving.


- Garnish with mint if desired.

For topping
:

1 can peach halves in syrup, drained and diced
Fresh mint sprigs (Optional)

    edith - no the base not not soft and mushy but because I misread the instruction, I feel the thick pudding is a little too mushy for me.
