Egg Tarts

Having the crusts baked last weekend, I didn't want to keep it too long, and ended up throwing them out. So I decided to turn it into egg tarts today.

Since the crusts were already baked, I used the "grill" function of the oven instead of the usual bake. After about 20mins, when it was baked, I took them out even without the "caramelised" colour. So I decided to use my blow-torch to "caramelise" them. The results are rather satisfactory, but for the taste, I don't know! :p

These little tarts are precious, and I just love the bruleed tops! I feel like I might get myself into trouble popping these babies one after another into my mouth. They definitely look like they have the potential to destroy any glimmer of will power I might possess.

Hi Jane,
Do you mean our oven grill function can't give the cramelised colour? I was thinking to get a blow-torch but ever since everything I bake not really require this blow-torch yet. Here you've got a nice caramelised colour on the little egg tarts.

Hi Elyse & HBS,
Thanks for the compliments. I wanted to play with my blow torch, so I created some excuse to use it!

Hi Grace,
Oh no, our oven definitely can give the caramelised look. But because I didn't use the bake/fan function since my tarts were already baked & crispy, I used the grill function instead. But I didn't dare to turn the temp up too high, for fear of burnt. You know how grill can burnt if you don't watch over it carefully. So after 20mins, when I felt the eggs were cooked enough, I took them out and used my blow torch instead. Hope that explains. :)
