MILK TART (MELKTERT) Pastry (South Africa)

1 cup flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 egg (take 1 egg, beat it up a bit and then use half of this)
2 oz butter
1/4 cup sugar salt

Beat together butter and sugar. Add egg, and then add in dry
ingredients. You should get a crumbly mix. Press this into a pie
dish and bake at 350F for 20 minutes.


1 1/2 eggs (use the other half of the egg that contributed to the pastry)
1 1/4 tablespoons flour
1 1/4 tablespoons cornflour
2 1/4 cups milk (this is 1 pint)
1 tsp vanilla flavouring
1 tsp butter

Boil the milk. In another bowl/pot (depending on whether you are
using a microwave or cooker), beat the egg and sugar. Add the flour
and cornflour to the egg/sugar mixture and beat this together. Add
the milk and cook till it thickens. (This works well in a microwave
oven). Remove from heat and add vanilla and butter. Beat well, and
pour into the baked shell. Sprinkle with cinnamon or nutmeg, and
cool. (This is best refrigerated.)

Reviewer: Catherine K from Belgium
After serching for a long time for the best recipe, this one is the one that will go into me recipe book... it is easy, quick and a taste from home ( we live in Belgium now )There is however an error there needs to be sugar listed in the first and second part so just duplicate the sugar as listed below and all turns out well.
