  1. Step 1:

    Combine all custard ingredients in a saucepan and whisk until smooth and combined.

  2. Step 2:

    Bring to boil over a medium heat, stirring/whisking constantly. Boil for 2 minutes still stirring until thickened. Turn off the heat and set aside.

  3. Step 3:

    Set oven to 230ºC and grease a 12 hole muffin tin.

  4. Step 4:

    Roll out the shortcrust pastry into a square. Roll up the pastry into a sausage shape. Cut the ‘sausage’ into 12 even pieces. Roll each piece out flat into a round shape, press into the muffin holes.

  5. Step 5:

    Whisk the custard again, take out the cinnamon stick. Fill the pastry holes until 2/3rds full, do not overfill.

  6. Step 6:

    Bake for 10-12 minutes until the pastry is nicely brown at the edges and the custard has firmed up and has the brown marks on the custard traditional on custard tarts.

  7. Step 7:

    Let the tarts cool in the tin before taking them out.
