Cream Cheese Tarts

Original recipe from here

shared by Wan Norazila from Face Book

For the crust pastry:

160g butter
40g icing sugar
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
1/2 a large egg
250g all purpose flour (may need more if dough is too soft)

Method: Mix all ingredients together until a soft dough forms, adding more flour (a teaspoonful at a time) if dough is too soft to handle.

Press into tart moulds and bake at 170C for 20 minutes until lightly browned.

For filling:

250g cream cheese
15g butter
50g icing sugar
1/2 egg lightly beaten
10g whipping cream (optional)
1/2 tsp vanilla extract

Method:

Cream the cheese with butter and sugar until soft and fluffy. Add the egg, a tablespoon at a time (maximum 1.5 tablespoon , not more than that)

Beat for few seconds only. If batter is too thick add some of the whipping cream and fold in with a spatula, do not use an electric mixer or batter will be too soft to pipe!

Put the filling into piping bag with a round nozzle and pipe in an upright position into the tart shells. [First place some fruits or nutella or nuts into the tart shell before piping the cheese in.]

Bake for 10-15 minutest (top and bottom heat) at 170C. Tarts are done if not sticking to finger when touched.
