Eggster Easter, and we’re celebrating with one of our favorite foods: eggs! I mean really, what can’t they do? Breakfast, lunch or dinner, eggs are everywhere. Inspired by one of our favorite dim sum dishes, egg tarts, we created our own version that’s perfect for snacking on after a long day of egg hunting. Let’s get crackin’! (Aren’t egg puns egg-cellent?!)
– 1 pack frozen pie crust (we used the Trader Joe’s brand)
– ⅔ cup granulated sugar
– 1 ½ cups water
– 9 eggs
– ½ tsp vanilla extract
– 1 cup evaporated milk
– tools: mini tart pan
Start off by preheating your oven to 400 degrees F.
In a small saucepan, bring the sugar and water to a boil. Once it’s boiling, remove from heat and let it cool to room temperature. Meanwhile, beat all 9 eggs. It’s going to be quite the workout! Strain the eggs into a large bowl with a sieve to get rid of those chunky bits.
Pour the cooled sugar water into the eggs, add the vanilla extract and milk and mix well.
Then it’s time to create the tarts! Spray your pans with nonstick cooking or baking spray. Tear off pieces of the premade pie crust to form small balls. Put a ball in the center of the tart pan and press with your thumb until it lines the bottom of the pan. This may take some experimentation to find the right size ball. Pour egg mixture into the crust. Pop your egg tarts into the oven for about 15-20 minutes, or until the edges begin to brown slightly.
After that, add some sprinkles to make it festive, and you’re done! Easy as egg? ;)
