Hong kong egg tarts

 

Ingredients

For the pastry (makes approx 20 tarts)

撻皮是参考了簡易食譜何太的份量,但做法有少許變化。 我就加咗D鹽,加咗D醋。

225g of plain flour, plus extra for dusting

125g of butter, cubed

48g of caster sugar

one small egg, beaten

a few drops of vinegar (vinegar helps prevent the formation of gluten which makes for a tough crust)

5ml of vodka vanilla

pinch of salt

You’ll need some egg tart moulds.
