For the custard filling, you can add more cornstarch and it should help to make it a bit more stiff. Yes, it can be a bit tricky to temper the raw eggs with the hot milk. As you mentioned the key is to work really fast. As for the crust, yes it does tend to shrink down upon cooking. Sometimes leaving it in the freezer for up to 45 mins and then letting it thaw at room temp helps a bit. Glad you enjoyed the tart recipe! -Simon

I actually had to buy a tart pan b/c I didn’t have one. (I had to remove one from my registry now b/c I bought it myself). I did run into a few problems with trying the filling for the first time. I thought I tempered the eggs, but I guess I didn’t pour enough of the hot milk in the first time. So when I went to pour the eggs into the pan they curdled almost immediately. Thank god I came prepared and bought extra eggs that morning. I wound up doing it all over again, and this time hoped and prayed for the best! It came out very stiff. I put it in the freezer as per direction and when it came time to assemble it was just fine. I just wish there was more to fill the tart. I like more custard I suppose. As far as the crust, I wish I had more on the sides. I guess I didn’t expect it to shrink in the oven. Ahh well, lesson learned.
Thank you for giving me my very first tart recipe! 🙂 It did come out wondeful and as aprehensive as I was about the Apricot jam, I loved the way it all tasted in the end. 🙂 Thanks!

Also, I got here because I saw you posted a review for Nibbana in Bellevue WA last year, but didn’t see many other WA mentions. Was that just a one time thing?
