    Unkaleong – next time put a napkin around your neck before you visit Rasa Malaysia! LOL!

    Fatboybakes – Yeah, I guess it will be hard to find this kind of products in Malaysia. I work in the US by the way.

    Lucia – I am not a big fan of berries either (fresh), but when they are backed or used in desserts, they are good.

    Budding Cook – when are you going to try baking some cakes. ;)

    Woaw, what an amazing picture !!! It really nice, I love it. You do not need to put the eat me on the picture because that was the first thing I thought when I saw it ;-) this is not Malaysian food, isn’t it ;-)

    Thank you for your comment on my blog. Basically, the “story” said that I was in a bad day, with quite a lot of non-motivating events…anyway. I went in my Asian shop and I found a Thai mango. I have eaten the first one in Ayutthaya in Thailand and it was just wonderful, you this so intensive taste…And I have just cook some crepe for this mango, with a small swiss touch ;-) That was the story.

    Have a nice day
    Cheers
    Claude

    Mmm…looks delicious, the strawberry and blueberries tart I mean (Have to be specific – Tonixe’s comment is so funny! LOL)

  7. simcooks

    I hardly bake but this vanilla cream filling looks easy to make. I can make that and fill up some Choux Pastry Puffs.

  8. Rasa Malaysia

    Tonixe – too funny!

    Claude – thanks, you are always so courteous and sweet. I am so happy Melting Wok found you in blogosphere. :)
    No, this is not Malaysian; sometimes I have to make something other than Malaysian food. :)

    CP – ;)

    WMW – Is it more delicious than Daniel Henney?! :P

    Simcooks – yep, try it. Quite simple actually.

    Elmo – indeed!

    Just add grated coconut seasoned with turmeric, lemon grass, red chilies and you’ve got cross-cultural ‘Amerilaysian’ Tarts.

    Die leow die leow, it says “eat me eat me” but I can’t seem to reach it leh. Only left scratches and fingerprints on my monitor.
    I must stock up baking pantry before I try all ur egg tarts and berry tarts recipe. I don’t bake -tt’s y never keep ingredients eg. vanilla extract, sugar and no baking utensils.
    But looks like your post may power the change!
    You, power leh! ;p

  11. MeiyeN

    oh wow, looks so tempting…. i am drooling….. must really say that you are absolutely good in cooking and baking!!!!!

  12. Rasa Malaysia

    Food Marathon – hmmm, I like that idea, especially the term “Amerilaysia.” ;)

    Tigerfish – no need to die lah; just go by some ingredients and can bake liao. I also don’t bake much before but now I am hooked on it.

    Meiyen – you are so sweet, thanks for your compliment. Hehe

  13. simcooks

    Hello… I made the vanilla cream filling for my pastry puff, but it turned out too liquid. Is it becos I did not cook it long enough? How to make it more custard like?

    I want to post my pictures. Can I reference your URL and list your vanilla cream filling recipe in my post?

  14. Patrick

    I just bought all the ingredients to make these, which definitely wasn’t that hard to find… Thanks for making such easy recipes I’m counting down til your cookbook =). How long do you think these tarts would last, because I wanted to make them ahead of time for a dinner party?

  15. Jaclyn

    The recipe doesn’t say how long I need to cook the filling after the egg yolks have been added and when to add the butter and vanilla. I tried making this, but my filling is runny. It tastes great though! What do you think went wrong? Oh, can I substitute the milk for something non dairy like soy milk? Would like my son to try it but he is allergic to dairy and nuts. Thanks!
