They’re soft, flavorful, and easy to make. My family frequently requests this dessert, so I made these even though I’m not hosting a gathering. Watch the video below to learn how to make these. 




  • 3/4 cup milk
  • 1/4 cup whipping cream
  • 2 eggs, lightly beaten
  • 1/4 cup of sugar
  • 2 – 3 drops of pure vanilla

For the Pastry:

  • 1 cup of all-purpose flour
  • 1 tbsp cornstarch
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/4 cup of sugar
  • 1/4 cup of butter
  • 1 egg yolk
  • milk
  • a pinch of nutmeg powder (for the top)


Step 1

In a bowl, add two beaten eggs followed by 3/4 cup of milk (add it gradually while beating), 1/4 cup of whipping cream, 2 drops of pure vanilla, and 1/4 cup of sugar. Whisk everything until smooth and the sugar’s dissolved. Once done, sift the mixture and let it sit for ten to thirty minutes. Next, in another bowl, combine 1 cup of all-purpose flour, 1 tbsp cornstarch, 1/4 tsp salt, and 1/4 cup of sugar. Mix well, then add 1/4 cup of butter. Using a butter cutter, mix the butter in to incorporate it with the flour.

Step 2

Next, add one egg yolk and some milk and stir everything together. Now, transfer the dough to your working surface, flour it, and knead for a couple of times. Once done, wrap it with a plastic and refrigerate for about 20 minutes. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F at this point also. In the meantime, grease the muffin tin with some melted butter. Now, roll out the dough between 1/4″ and 1/8″ thickness. After this, cut out the crust with a cookie cutter slightly larger than the muffin tin cups.

Step 3

Once you all have your crusts, put them on each muffin tin cup, gently pushing them down. After this, divide the custard mixture on each crust. Sprinkle a pinch of nutmeg powder on top (optional). Place them in the preheated oven and bake for 15 to 20 minutes. After baking, let them cool for 15 to 20 minutes to let the custard set.
