(cheat’s) Caramel Tarts


  • All butter sweet pastry cases (x30)
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 3 tbsp plain flour
  • 1 1/2 tbsp butter
  • 1 tsp vanilla essence
  • 2 egg yolks
  • 1 cup milk


  1. Put brown sugar, plain flour, butter, vanilla essence and egg yolks into a medium saucepan and mix well together.
  2. Slowly add milk beating well (don’t worry if mixture appears to curdle – it usually does).
  3. Put over a medium heat and stir continuously until it thickens and has a rich glossy brown colour, about 10 to 15 minutes.
  4. Let cool and pour into ready made pastry shell.
