For ten delicious servings of my favourite tart!
- 125 g butter
- 1/2 cup sugar
- 1 egg
- 2 cups flour, sifted
- salt, sifted
- 1 tablespoon butter
- 1 litre milk
- 1 cup sugar
- 2 eggs
- 3 tablespoons cornflour (cornstarch)
- 3 tablespoons flour
- 10 ml vanilla essence
Cream the margarine and sugar together and beat in the egg.
Add the flour and salt and knead until a soft dough is formed.
Press the mixture into a greased circular pie dish and bake at 350°F/180°C for 15 minutes.
Bring the milk and margarine to the boil.
Cream the sugar, eggs, maizena, flour and vanilla essence.
Add some of the hot milk to the creamed mixture, then pour it back into the pot and heat gently until it thickens (should have thickness of a cream sauce).
DO NOT BOIL.
Pour the filling into the pie crust and cool.
Refrigerate until required and sprinkle with cinnamon to serve.
