South Africans love melktert, also known as milk tart, with a thin pastry crust and smooth custard filling. However, it can be made for different occasions and some of those events need smaller, hand-held versions. These mini melktert pastries are perfect for family events and fancy parties alike. With ingredients you already have in your home freezer, fridge and pantry, you can make a great fun dessert for everybody to enjoy as the last days of summer approach.

Mini melktert pastries suggestions

Most people who bake have some store-bought puff pastry in the freezer and it’s always perfect but you can use a homemade pastry too. The different ingredients to the original recipe are here for a bit of a change but a regular baked or fridge melktert recipe will do just as well for the filling. Due to the extra condensed milk, the pastries are sweeter and you can add some vanilla essence too. If you don’t want to use the microwave for the custard, use a double boiler.
