My very thin crust egg tart filled with silky smooth egg custard.
I personally like thin crust everything, you can make it thicker if you like the crust.

This egg tart recipe can be used for baking or air fry egg tarts. The method shared in this blog post is oven baked version. Air frying method is rather straight forward, just air fry the crust until cooked, pour in egg mixture and continue to air fry until cooked through. Easier and it takes shorter time. 

Air Fried Egg Tart
My first egg tart made in May 2014.

The result is almost the same, however the air fried egg tarts may have some burn patches on the egg custard that makes it looks like Portuguese egg tarts. 👆
