Ingredients: Custard - 20 g all purpose flour 1/4 tsp cinnamon pinch of salt 25 ml whole milk / 125 ml whole milk 3 egg yolks 1 cinnamon stick 1 vanilla bean 85 ml water 120 g sugar 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
Pastry Dough - 300 g all purpose flour 1/4 tsp salt 210 ml water 180 g very soft butter
Instructions: - In a stand mixer with hook attachment add 300g flour, 1/4 tsp salt, 210 ml water & beat on medium speed until dough doesn’t stick to the side of the bowl - Flour work surface generously & let dough rest for 15 mins - Roll out into a rectangle & spread soft butter on top (2/3 of dough) fold in thirds & turn - Repeat process 2 times & on the third round butter the entire dough surface - Roll up tight like a cinnamon roll, cover with plastic wrap & put in the *freezer* for 15 mins - Add 1/4 tsp cinnamon, 20g of flour to a bowl & whisk - Whisk in 25 ml of milk & then add 3 egg yolks - Heat 85 ml water & 120 g sugar over medium heat until sugar is dissolved - Bring 125 ml milk, cinnamon stick & vanilla bean up to a boil - Add milk mixture to the egg mixture slowly while whisking continuously - Add water & sugar mixture - Strain into a bowl & set aside - Flour work surface and cut pastry roll into equal parts (I would say this recipe actually makes 10 tarts) - Place in muffin tins & use your fingers to hollow out the middle - Add custard to each pastry cup & bake at 500 degrees F for 8-10 mins or until top is slightly blackened - Dust with icing sugar & enjoy!

“He said to me, ‘Rise up, my love.Come with me, my beautiful one.Look! The winter is past.The rains are over and gone.Flowers are appearing on the earth.The season for singing has come.The cooing of doves are heard in our land.The fig trees are producing their early fruit.The flowers on the vines are giving off their sweet smell.Rise up and come, my love.Come with me, my beautiful one” Song of Solomon 2:10-13
