Milk Tart 

This is a very popular South african Teatime treat/Dessert a plus in its favour is it can be made in advance.The traditional version is made with a Puff Pastry base but I find a short crust type base makes it much easier to cut and handle.The filling can also be put into Custard cups and served as a milk pudding.  This doesn’t turn you into a sugar bowl so its nice, not too sweet but moreish.
(between you and me Joy I just buy pre-made pie crust, am lazy and generally I always burn it but that is typical Audrey) (I think I should share that with everyone cause I’m lazy too!!!)
