  • In a small saucepan, combine milk and coffee granules; heat over medium high heat for 2 to 3 minutes, until milk is steaming and tiny bubbles appear around edge of saucepan. Beat milk into eggs. Strain egg mixture through sieve into a pitcher. Carefully pour egg mixture into tart shells, filling evenly (tarts will be very full). Sprinkle each tart with a little cinnamon.

  • Bake at 350 degrees F (175 degrees) for 20 to 25 minutes, or until filling is set and tart shells are golden brown. Cool before serving.

These tarts were quick and easy. The filling only filled 9 tart shells but they were great. Would definitely make again. Read More

I made the mistake of using phyllo shells and the filling just soaked into them. I can't recalll seeing 3" tart shells so I will have to look for these next time. (Frozen or not?) Also I did bake some of the filling in a small glass dish since the shells didn't work and I don't think it tasted rich or creamy the way I was hoping. This recipe sounds delicious but needs a little tweakin. Read More

I love the taste of cappuccino but this was too coffee flavored and I only used 3 TBSP of coffee liquere. Next time I will try using less coffee crystals and I think it will be fine. Read More

These tarts were very good and very easy to make. I confess I was a little intimidated by the egg tempering process but it turned out to be incredibly easy. There tarts turned out to be very tender and flavorful. They are well worth the time and effort it takes. Read More
