Vanilla Custard Tarts <3

My First Ever Vanilla Custard Tart…



It was not much of a hard task, but the only thing I found a bit of a task was making the crust thin. But nevertheless it is an easy recipe, which just requires some amount of practice. 

Ingredients For The Tart

  • 200 grams of flour
  • 100 grams of unsalted melted butter
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 tablespoon of custard powder
  • 1 tablespoon of sugar
  • 1 tablespoon of cold water
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract (for taste)

Ingredients For The Custard

  • Any Vanilla Custard Powder (I Used Rafhan Vanilla Custard Powder) and follow the instructions on the packet

For Topping:

  • Cocoa Powder
  • Waffle or Biscuits


  •  Mix all the dry ingredients -Flour, salt, sugar and custard powder, together properly. Make sure they are mixed evenly, as usually we just ignore mixing the dry ingredients.
  • Add the melted butter, vanilla extract and water and kneed well.
  • When it forms a soft dough, wrap it in a clingfilm and leave it to chill in the refrigerator for 30 minutes.
  • Roll out the dough on a lightly floured surface, in a round shape. 
  • Make sure the dough is not thick but is thin.
  • Butter the inside of a baking pan.
  • Carefully pick the dough and place it inside the baking pan.
  • Prick the dough with a fork.
  • Pre-heat the oven to 190 degrees.
  • Bake the dough for around 20 minutes.
  • Meanwhile, start making the custard as per the instructions on the custard packet.
  • Leave it to cool for atleast 15 – 20 minutes.
  • By then the dough would be baked.
  • Carefully pour the custard into the tart and refrigerate it
  • Or take the crust out on to a serving dish and then pour the custard into the tart, as it would impossible to cut the tarts for the baking pan.
  • Refrigerate it till it sets. 
  • I used a watermelon cutter to make equals cuts of the tart. You could just simply cut them into four pieces and then half each piece again.
  • By using a net sprinkle cocoa powder a little on the tarts and then place a biscuit over each!
  • And enjoy 🙂
