Notes

Cooking tips for how to make Chinese Hong Kong style egg tarts:

  • Tasty egg tarts should have a thin crust, but do not make the crust too thin because it will break easily. Therefore, a skill is required to knead a dough into the tart molder.
  • Boil water and add sugar until it melt and set it aside to cool down. Then, beat eggs and use a strainer to remove the bubbles. And, add to the sugar water. Make sure the sugar water is completely cool off before pouring the beaten eggs 
  • pour the filling mixture to tart crust molder and remember to leave some spaces not all the way full.
  • This recipe can yield around 18-20 egg tarts. If you have lots of egg filling left, (because of thicker crust), I recommend repeating the dough steps to make more dough.
