It is impossible to flop this recipe.

SMAAKLIKE MELK TERT

Pastry:

  • 2 cup flour
  • ½ cup sugar
  • 125g (4oz) margarine or butter
  • 1 egg
  • salt
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder

Method:

Cream margarine and sugar. Add egg, flour, baking powder and salt. Mix well. Press into 2 pie plates. Bake for 10 minutes. (The crust will rise as it bakes, so I usually squash it down, or put dried beans in to keep it down - whichever works for you.)

Filling:

  • 4 cups milk (I use half and half or full cream)
  • 2 ½ Tablespoons flour
  • 1 cup sugar
  • vanilla essence
  • 1 Tablespoon margarine (I prefer butter)
  • 2 ½ Tablespoons corn flour
  • 2 eggs
  • Cinnamon for sprinkling on top

Method:

Boil milk and margarine or butter. Mix rest of ingredients to a smooth paste. Add slowly to boiling milk, which has been removed from heat. Return to heat, and stir until thick. Pour into shells and sprinkle with cinnamon.

Note: I usually make it the day before and keep in the 'fridge overnight - it sets nicely that way. Also, I use Tenderflake deep dish pie pastry (I guess there must be something similar in Australia - look for a flaky pastry), rather than make my own pastry, but the one that comes with the recipe isn't too bad.
