Egg Tarts

Suddenly I was craving for egg tarts and started to itch about making it.  Browsed through a few bloggers's lovely egg tarts and was kind of undecided which recipe to adapt.

I have never make any egg tarts before, some say the filling is a bit difficult to get it right, etc,etc.  And this being my maiden attempt, I want to get it right.  So I decided to adapt Lena's which I feel a lot easier for my first attempt on egg tarts.  These are really easy to make and so good to pair off with a cup of nice tea or kopi.    Crispy skin and smooth egg filling ... just the perfect tarts for me ... love it so much and I shared some with my neighbours who enjoyed very much too.  Thanks, Lena for sharing  - this recipe is worth keeping and repeating.
