Homemade Chinese Egg Tarts

Now that Chinese bakeries are mainly on the decline in London, and Chinese egg tarts are getting more and more expensive, it’s time to make my own… 
I used a recipe from my Chinese cookbook Quick and Easy Chinese – dim sum version… First attempt of course was too hard. Pastry was slightly thick and I should’ve added some sugar into it. The book said 20 minutes to bake, but this took 40 minutes! 😅
My second attempt, I tried to change the recipe to make exact 8 egg tarts. Big fail! Pastry was not crunchy enough. Too dry. Egg mix didn’t have enough water and I added less sugar this time. Cooking time was 20 minutes. 😆

Third attempt will be soon… 😋
