Hi elaine,

OMG thanks auntie for sharing!

Quick question, how many tarts this recipe yields? and the whipped cream, can we use those ready made whipped cream in tins?

The pretty mom said...

hi aunty, how long do we have to bake it? coz u say bake till golden brown but i'm bad at judging..

Aunty Yochana said...

hi pretty mom,

roughly 10 to 15 mins depending on the size of your tart.

Hi Aunty,
I like to bake this tart for the occasion of old people anointing mass in my church but before baking i have few queries.(1)I don't have kitchen food processor but i have an electric hand machine.Can i use this machine for making pastry.(2)instead of durian tart can i fill some fruits instead.

Aunty Yochana said...

hi kuttani

For pastry, just use your hands will do.

Yes , instead of durian, u can use any fruit of your choice.
