Lavender Cheese Tarts

1

I have not tried cheese tarts before. For a change, I decided to make them , with the ‘help’ of my new tart presser. The size is small but convenient and fun to make them. The size is just right for Baby Ian who finished 3.  Zann asked why I didn’t make egg tarts for her.

Recipe (adapted from 䓱老师’s Perfect Cheese)

Crust ingredients

plain flour 160g
caster sugar 60g
butter 120g
beaten egg 30g

To make crust, combine flour and sugar, rub in butter. Add in beaten egg, knead to form a dough. Chill in fridge for 30mins. Roll out the dough, press into tart moulds, trim off edge. Bake in oven at 180d for 15mins until half baked.

Cheese fillings

cream cheese 160g
caster sugar 60g
eggs 2
whipping cream 40ml
ricotta cheese 50g
dried lavender 2tbsp

To make fillings, beat cream cheese and sugar till smooth. Add in eggs, mix well. Stir in whipping cream and ricotta cheese to form batter.  Pour into prepared tart moulds. Sprinkle dried lavender on top. Bake in oven at 180d for 10-15mins or until cooked.

Note: I halved the quantity of the ingredients as I used small tart moulds.
