Dan tat, a Chinese egg custard, holds a special place in my heart. I always ate them as a kid, pretending that they were baby pies just for me. You can find them at any Chinese bakery, and though sometimes they come in normal-pie size, they are usually small and bite-size!
My favorite way to eat them is when they are super fresh and slightly warm. I'll pop them right out of the tin and straight into my mouth!
Or, I'll pretend I'm a fairy and cut myself a little tart slice.
|Actually that's still kinda big for a fairy.|
Anyway, apparently these are pretty easy to make since they don't involve water bath baking like creme brulee or flan, so I may try and make some for Thanksgiving. I wonder if I can find small tins somewhere, or will I just have to eat a bunch of dan tat and save the tins? :)
