Cheat Code Custard Tarts




250g Ready Made Custard

2 Tablespoons Cornflour (20g)

1 Teaspoon of Vanilla Extract

1/2 Teaspoon Nutmeg

Pre-rolled Vegan Friendly Puff Pastry

1 Tablespoon of Melted Butter for Brushing

2 tablespoons of Brown Sugar

Start by pre-heating oven to 200c.


In a bowl mix together Custard, Vanilla, Cornflour, Nutmeg and stir together till there are no clumps.


Take a muffin tin and grease with non-stick spray or brush with butter.

On a clean surface, roll out pastry so that it’s still on it’s parchment paper. Take a Cup/mug around 10cm wide to cut out even circles. I got 6 out of one roll, but then you can press the cutaway and make two more. Using your hand, slightly stretch the dough a little, Place inside muffin tin, if it overlaps just crimp it into place. Repeat.

Brush pastry in the tin with melted butter. Now add 2 tablespoons of the custard mixture in each tart, and you can customise with toppings. I put a bit of jam and hazelnuts in a few of mine.


Lastly sprinkle brown sugar all around the pastry. Bake for 20-25 minutes. Till the pastry is golden brown on the edges.


Optional but recommend step: place under a grill for 30 1 minute to really caramelise the top. Alternatively you can use a blow torch to to the same affect. Allow to cool for 15 minutes so the custard can set, then enjoy with coffee!
