custard tart

Recipe for 9" tart
9 0z shortcrust pastry ( I used Pillsbury pie crust)
2 whole eggs + 2 egg yolks

2 oz unrefined caster sugar
1 vanilla pod/ half teaspoon vanilla
1/2 tsp nutmeg, grated or cinnamon

375° F oven. Greased pan. Line with prepared crust. Brush with eggwhite. Bake till golden, for 10 minutes.
Cool. Reduce temperature to 325° F.
Combine milk and cream in saucepan. Medium heat. Bring to simmer. Add vanilla.
Whisk eggs+ yolks + sugar. Add the milk mixture to this, slowly, stirring constantly.
Pour custard into pastry case/pie crust. Sprinkle top with nutmeg or cinnamon. ( I used both)
Bake for 30 - 45 minutes. Cool.

PS: These are usually made in mini tartlet tins, as individual pieces. Will post that once I make it.
