"dan tat"

look what i did everybody

"dan tat" or chinese egg tart/custard is my favorite thing. my grandma had been telling me how hard they were to make and how i wouldn't be able to do it, which is why i ended up making them. if you want the super flaky crust you have to use lard and that freaks me out, so i just used extra butter and it still tasted good. i also used skim (!) milk instead of whole because that's all we had. then i baked them in cupcake tins. here's the recipe i used. it's very great to make two dozen of your favorite thing especially because when we went to dim sum we didn't have to order any dan tat because i just came home and ate a bunch.
