Looks tempting, doesn't it?

Pour the egg mixture into a mini kettle 

and start filling the empty shells till 90% full

They are all filled and ready to go into the oven.

Both the crispy shell and wobbly custard are cooked within 10 minutes.

Unmould these dainty tartlets to prevent moisture from setting in.

These tartlets are sold at RM4.00 for 10. It's dirt cheap, right?

  1. I tried these before...once only.. then 2nd time went there, no more liow.. must go early morning.. my kids always ask me to buy whenever we are there.. but many times wrong timing!

  2. Claire:

    I was the lucky one because I arrived 5 minutes before the tour group rushed in and sapu-ed all the tarts... You're right, timing is very important.
