Hassle-Free Egg Tarts

Craving for some afternoon snacks?
This simplified egg tart recipe frees you from all the work of kneading and making dough,
But how?
There is this great invention called premade frozen puff pastry sheets,
Just a few more steps then you can spend the afternoon with fresh baked pasties and fresh brewed tea.

Ingredients (for 6 big ones)?

4 egg yolks
1/3 cup of whole milk
1/3 cup of heavy whipping cream
1/3 cup of sugar
(I actually use a little bit less sugar and substitute with 1 teaspoon of honey)
1/4 teaspoon of vanilla extract
1 box of Pepperidge Farm puff pastry sheet


Thaw the frozen pastry sheet according to the package instruction,
Preheat the oven to 400 degree Fahrenheit.

Meanwhile, have a small sauce pan ready,
Pour in the milk, whipping cream, and sugar,
Turn to medium heat, just let it simmer, don't burn the sugar,
Whisk the mixture, add in honey if you decided to use it, and vanilla extract,
Keep whisking, move away from the heat.

Have 6 individual tartlet pans ready,
Unfold the thawed pastry sheet, 
Use the tartlet pan as your size measure, cut a slightly larger circle around it,
Fold the pastry sheet into the tartlet pan,
Pour in the mixture till 80% full,
Transfer to the oven for 18 to 20 minutes.

That's it, super simple,
Now who is down for these high calorie babies!?


  1. Super simple and super giant! They look really yummy :). Never knew egg tarts were so easy to make! I think I would use no or less cream though if I was cooking but it would be less smooth and creamy.
