Egg Tarts

Well, I haven't been here in a while, but I just wanted to upload my second egg tart attempt. I've made this once before using a different recipe, and the results were worth shuddering about. So a few internet searches later, I found a suitable recipe using Google.

Oh yeah, this recipe is far from vegan... just as a warning.

The recipe is below:

1 cup confectioners' sugar
3 cups all-purpose flour
1 cup butter
1 egg, beaten
1 dash vanilla extract

2/3 cup white sugar
1 1/2 cups water
9 eggs, beaten
1 dash vanilla extract
1 cup canned evaporated milk
I'm not a big fan of these things, but taste-wise, I thought it was pretty close to the real thing as far as the egg part goes. The crust was not very flaky like the actual ones, but good enough in itself. The actual egg tarts actually contain lard, which would eliminate this as vege-slop.
