Traditional Milk Tart


Milk tart (or Melk Tert) is a South African dessert pie. A sweet pastry crust is filled with a custard filling and topped with a generous dusting of cinnamon. Some milk tart recipes call for the custard to be baked but my favorite version is unbaked custard gently flavored with almond extract, vanilla and cinnamon set in a sweet pie crust. If you love custard-based pies, you will LOVE milk tart.
