Egg Tart

Oh wow... finally i am able to sit down and take a deep breath... had a very long day today... busy busy... last night we went to JB to do our usual monthly groceries shopping and this morning Lyn and her kiddoes came by... love it when Sonia gets to play with Danish and Dafinah... shes at that age where she enjoys company... loves to interact with others... she talks so so much (in her own language of cos!) with them hehehheee

She laughs whenever Danish make a fool of himself hehhe... u shud see the way she laughs...its hillarious! I break my fast at home and we later went to Adam Rd for dinner... was a good day today but am keput right now...

So ok.. enough abt that... today i bake Baulu for the kids and Egg tart for us mothers... I've always used Aunty Yochana egg tart recipe but today i thought i gv this recipe a try... taste wise... we all love it.. hb said he prefers this one better... i find the dough rather easy to handle... no need to chill ur dough... no need to half bake ur tart bef pouring egg mixture... the filling to me is a little sweet tho... other than that... everything else is perfect... recipe fm Linda of MR
