Mini Milk Tart Recipe

Mini milk tarts, I absolutely love this traditional tart that is made out of a crusty tart base and a creamy milky filling, topped off with cinnamon! it is perfect for an afternoon “goûter” with a hot cup of rooibos tea. Mini bite-size ones are even better because one bite will be sufficient for oh let’s say a little while!
