Custard Tart

The below recipe is custard tart, but unfortunately I didn’t have a tart pan, but I managed to do it with an oven proof bowl which I had with me. It is simple and easy tart recipe without much more complications. I usually go for easy, healthy and simple recipes. So here goes the recipe. The original recipe calls for All-purpose flour, but I have done it with wheat flour.
Tart Crust
Wheat Flour: 1 ½ cup
Sugar powdered: ¼ cup
Salt: needed
Cold milk: needed to knead the dough
Cold butter: ¼ cup
Milk: 1 cup
Custard powder: 3tbsp
Sugar: 5-6tbsp
Apple: 1
Jam: 1tbsp (optional)

Method of Preparation
In a bowl add milk, custard powder and sugar.
Stir well. Heat the milk and keep on stirring. When the custard is cooked and becomes thick switch off the flame. (The custard should be thick enough.)
Chop the apple into small pieces and add into the custard. Keep some apple pieces for decoration too. Chill the custard.
In a bowl add wheat flour, salt and powdered sugar.
Add in the cold butter and knead with fingers till the butter combines well with the flour.
Then add in needed cold milk to form hard dough. (Don’t add more milk)
If you have time u can refrigerate the dough for 1 hour.
Then take out the dough and roll on a floured surface and cut into the sizes of tart pan.
Arrange it on the tart pan and just do pricks with the fork.
Bake in a preheated oven to about 20-25 minutes or till done
Cool on a wire rack.
Add in the needed custard in each tart and top with your favorite jam and apple pieces.
