Love at first sight, love at first bite. This is the perfect statement to describe the feeling one gets from seeing and tasting these luscious egg tarts. That glistening yellow custard filling within the flaky crust seems to lure you to fall for them, but wait until you try one.
Sink your teeth into the fluffy and light egg custard that tastes a bit like a flan until your teeth reaches the crispy and chewy crust. One bite just quickly leads to another and leaves you wanting more. Definitely love at first bite.
These tarts are made of flour, butter, sugar, milk and eggs and are baked until they reach a consistency that is soft and moist, and are best eaten while warm. Many have willingly fallen prey to these delish morsels since the 1940’s.
