Hong Kong Flaky Egg Tarts
This may be the most EGGalicious ASMR baking video ever. Come along as I attempt to make egg tarts for the first time. Growing up just an hour's drive from San Francisco, it was always a treat to stop by old SF Chinatown at my favorite bakery for these sweet desserts. With a flaky, crispy, and very messy-to-eat puff pastry shell and a sweet, silky, custard center with just a hint of creme brule, oh my goodness...heaven in a bite. The secret recipe?...patience and lots of butter which makes both the world go round and my belly hehe. But life is too short to fret about a sweet treat every once in a while. As I like to say...do your crunches and have your cookies!
