Filipino Egg Tarts Cooking Instructions

  • In a mixing bowl, mix together the confectioners sugar and flour.
  • Mix in butter with a fork until it is in small crumbs.
  • Stir in the egg and vanilla until the mixture forms a dough. The texture should be slightly moist.
  • Add more butter if it is too dry, or more flour, if the dough seems greasy.
  • Shape dough into 1 1/2 inch balls, and press the balls into tart molds so that it covers the bottom, and goes up higher than the sides.
  • Use 2 fingers to shape the edge into an A shape.
  • Preheat the oven to 450 degrees F or 230 degrees Celcius.
  • Combine the white sugar and water in a medium saucepan, and bring to a boil.
  • Cook until the sugar is dissolved, remove from heat and cool to room temperature.
  • Strain the eggs through a sieve, and whisk into the sugar mixture.
  • Stir in the evaporated milk and vanilla.
  • Strain the filling through a sieve, and fill the tart shells.
  • Bake for 15 to 20 minutes in the preheated oven, until golden brown, and the filling is puffed up a little bit.

    I am searching for a TORTA recipe, the ones barrio folks bake during fiesta celebrations. It is like a muffin but as big as muffin or cake (but with no icing) and with sugar sprinkled at the top and its wrap at the bottom in a Japanese paper.. I hope you can post a Torta recipe soon, thank you.
