Method

Pastry

  1. Mix the flour, sugar and salt in a bowl. Add thr butter. Grind the mass with your hands until fine crumbs. Add the hand whisked egg with the dairy cream. Stir and quickly knead a smooth dough with your hands, form a ball. Place the dough on a sheet of a cling film. Press down on top with a plate 18 cm in diameter and close with the edges of the cling film. Refrigerate for at least 30 minutes.
  2. Place the dough on a cool floured surface. Roll out the dough with a rolling pin in a circle between two sheets of cling film, about 28 cm in diameter. Place in the springform lined with baking paper, 24 cm in diameter. Spread the dough over the bottom and sides of the mold. Remove the excess. Prick the dough with a fork and put the dough back into the fridge for about 30 minutes.
  3. Preheat the oven to 200C (390F). Cover with foil and sprinkle any dry beans or special dough balls on top. Put in the oven and bake for 15 minutes until light golden brown. Then take out and cool a little, remove the foil and beans. Reduce the temperature in the oven to 190C (375F).

Pour the milk mixture into the egg mixture, stir and pour over the baked dough base. Put in the oven and bake for 40-50 minutes, until the filling takes hold. Turn off the oven and leave the tart inside for another 15 minutes. Then take it out and leave to cool at room temperature. Then put in the fridge until completely cooled.
