How to make Cheese Tarts Recipe
To bgein making the Cheese Tarts recipe, lets start with the crust take butter and icing sugar mix well in stand or electric mixer till butter is white n creamy. Add egg and vanilla extract.
Mix them egg should mix well with the butter. In the end add maida, milk powder and mix well like a dough just like chapati dough but a bit softer. Wrap it a plastic wrap and rest for 10 minutes.
Preheat your oven at 190 degree Celsius for 10 minutes. Roll the dough n make small circle shouldn’t be too thick or thin just like how you make pooris you can use tart moulds or just take small circles n fix them in your cupcakes tray or moulds.
Bake the tarts at 190 degrees for 15 to 16 minutes or till the tarts are lightly brown once they are out of oven they will turn out crisp
Now comes the filling to mix all the ingredients you can either use double boiler method or just take a non stick pan and simmer it. Add cream cheese, cheese, lemon juice, sugar, vanilla extract mix till cheese melts.
Add milk, corn starch and add very little water mix it well and add to the mixture. Give it a nice mix till everything is mixed well.
Remove from heat, cool a bit and add eggs one by one and butter mix well and cool the mixture. Once the crust cools down add the filling and brush the filling with egg yolk it gives a nice glaze. Bake once again at 230 degree Celsius for 6 to 7 minutes.
Remove from the oven let the tarts cool down. Can store them in fridge or in a container outside at room temperature.
Do not add more eggs or corn starch it makes the filling too thick and it will loose its creamy flavour
Do not over bake tarts very light brown colour is well enough
Be careful with butter more butter needs more flour while making crust
