Quips & Anecdotes - Attempt at Dan Ta (Egg Tart)

So for Chinese New Year, I decided to try and make dan ta (Chinese egg tart). These were definitely a favorite whenever my family and I went out to have dim sum; I used to order these first all the time when I was a child. Though I've grown out of the obsession with them, my younger brother is now in it so I figured I'd give it a try. I followed the recipe listed here and ended up with way too much custard for the amount of dough that was made. I also realized that these were Hong Kong style which I haven't had before. I guess it meant that the crust was not a flaky pastry type? I found the dough recipe to be quite similar to shortbread. It was still delicious; don't get me wrong. I just think that I need to find another. As for how they turned out in others' opinions - the flavor was pretty much spot-on but my crust was too thick per tart (I had to use a muffin tin anyhow so my judgment of thickness was off). I would post a recipe but I'm going to still experiment with this yummy treat until I get it right!
