Cheese Egg Tart Recipe

Instead of making the usual egg filling like ordinary egg tart, I added in some cream cheese to see how the taste turns out to be. I made a mistake of adding biscuits crumbs on top of the pastry. I thought that by pressing the crumbs into the soft pastry should hold them in place but when I pour in the fillings all the crumbs floated on to the surface. Therefore the surface of the Cheese Egg Tart was not smooth. However the cream crackers biscuits that I added gave the Cheese Egg Tart additional crunchy flavour. Check this recipe out!

Pie Pastry
Flour, 4cups
Butter, 150gms
Salt to taste
Castor Sugar to taste (around ¼ cup) Iced cold water
Vanilla Essence, 1 teaspoon
Baking powder, 1 teaspoon

Fillings (All mixed together)
Cream Cheese, 100gms
Sugar ½ cup
Fresh milk, ½ cup 3 eggs
Vanilla essence, 1 teaspoon

Mix flour and butter until they form a granule like mixture. Add a little salt, sugar, baking powder and vanilla essence. Slowly pour in the iced cold water and mix well. Put the pie pastry in the fridge for half and hour. Flatten the pastry and put into a pie pan. Bake for around 15 to 20 minute in a preheated oven at 180 Deg C. Take out the baked pie pastry and let it cool down a little. Pour in the fillings and bake the pie in oven at 180 Dec C for 20 minutes.
