Mini Cheese Tart


Right now, making tart is one of my favorite hobbies, haha.



Well, the reason is it's very easy, as all I have to do is putting all the ingredients into my mini chopper, and process. And I always get delicious tart with great texture!

This recipe will give you 12 of 6 cm tart, (anyway, you may get some extra pastry that you can make 1 more tart or bake it and eat it as a cookie). 

This time is a cheese tart.
With this size, it's suitable for 1 person.


The first time that I made this recipe, I didn't seal the pastry with the egg whites, and the pastry softened from the moisture from the filling. 
So, I tried it again. By sealing the pastry, you can keep it longer (but it will soften anyway but slower). And I adjust the recipe to get a more delicious cheese filling. 

If you can I really suggest you bake it with only upper heat after filling, as it will give you lovely color and moist filling.
