Baked custard tart

IMGP3031-vert Hi everyone, today we're going to  bake a traditional french pastry.

This baked custard tart is also called "Parisian custard".
In fact every single bakery all over france has it on the counter.

It has a soft texture & a wonderful vanilla scent, just perfect for tea-time !!

Serves : 6

Here's what we need :

the pastry :

125g flour, 1/2 teasspoon salt, 1 teaspoon sugar, 125g butter at room temperature & cut in chunks, 1 egg yolk, 1 1/2 tablespoon milk.

the custard :

15cl milk, 15cl whipping cream, 40g flour, 2 eggs, 80g sugar, 2 teaspoon vanilla extract.

Here's what we do :

First the pastry :

Pour the flour in a large bowl.

Make a well and add the salt, sugar, butter, egg yolk & milk.

Work with your finger tips (or in a food procesor on medium speed) until well combined.

Put in the fridge for 1 hour.

Preheat your oven at 392°F.

Spray the pastry with a spin roll, put in your mould, cover with a baking sheet, fill with rice or ceramic pie wheights and cook for 25 minutes.

Meanwhile, whisk the eggs with the sugar & vanilla extract until light yellow & fluffy.

Add the flour.

Boil milk & cream together.

Add little by little to the mixture.

Pour the custard in the pastry.

Down your oven temperature to 338°F.

Cook for 25 minutes.
