Egg Tarts


This was the last session of baking with this group of kids.  I had, in total, accomplished 3 sessions before the year ends, and I feel thankful for the opportunity to serve.  You can see the recipes I did for the 1st and 2nd session here and here.

For this session, I had chosen to do egg tarts with the kids.  Look at the faces of these kids.  They were waiting eagerly for their turn to hands on.
I adapted the recipe from Christine and have tweaked the method to make it easier for the kids. 
I have tried making many egg tarts and only this recipe works for me.  You can find my 1st success story of egg tart here :D
I felt so grateful that Cheryl, Soo Feng and Ai Lee had volunteered to assist me when my baking buddy is unable to make.  It is so wonderful to serve alongside with friends who shared the same passion.

Be grateful.
