This is probably one of the most South African tea time treats I know. When you’re invited somewhere, you take along a milk tart. Most recipes for milk tart are baked. This recipe is my gran’s and no baking is required. It came in handy when I had no oven and used to sell to the local home industry. I had many orders for this milk tart.
1 pkt Tennis biscuits (they’re square coconut cookies)
150g butter (5.29oz)
4 cups milk
1 tblsp butter
1 cup sugar
1 tsp vanilla essence
3 tblsp flour
3 tblsp cornflour
Cinnamon for sprinkling
Melt the butter. Combine with crushed biscuits and press into 2 large tart pans. Chill. Tip: You can crush the biscuits with a pestle and mortar or put it into a strong bag and break it up. I often just put the biscuits a few at a time into the blender. The crumbs need to be course breadcrumb size.
Boil milk with butter. In the meantime, in a bowl, mix remaining ingredients into a paste. Add to boiling milk and stir until thick.
Pour into your biscuit bases. I invert a spoon over the base and pour onto that, so that the hot tart mixture doesn’t disturb the base. Sprinkle with cinnamon and leave to cool sufficiently to refrigerate.
