Step 1

Preheat the oven to 325* F. (After 10 mins, turn it up to about 340*F) In a bowl, mix the melted butter, eggs, and sugar. Blend until smooth.

Step 2

Pour in the Flour and slowly add the milk in the middle of it, stirring constantly. Add the vanillin.

Step 3

Using Aluminum foil baking cups, pour in the batch into the cups, leaving atleast 1.4 of a space for the tarts to rise and expand in the oven.

Step 4

Bake for 45 mins until Golden and check if they are fully done by poking the insides with a wooden chopstick to make sure it comes out clean.


The more eggs you add, the better the recipe comes out. The less milk you add, the faster it will deflate.
