Making tarts has been something I’ve enjoyed for 5 or 6 years now. There’s just something about creating a tart that makes me happy!
These little Vegan Custard Tarts are a mix of the buttery crust (magically made without butter) from my lemon bars and the creamy custard from my vanilla custard slice. Don’t they remind you of the classic tarts you find in bakeries, you know the ones with a sprinkle of nutmeg on top? It really does add something special. As always I try to make my desserts healthier than the standard, and they’re also gluten-free.
Please do let me know in the comments below if you have a suggestion on what type of tart you’d like to see next!
When making the crust for the tarts, I like to place 1/2 cup of the dough mixture into each tart pan, then work my way around building the sides of each shell. Once that has been done, I divide the remaining mixture left in the bowl between them, and press down to create the bottom of the tart shells. Smooth down the mixture in each one so it’s all joint together well.
If you choose to use turmeric powder to add some yellow colouring to the custard, add just a pinch at a time. It can turn bright yellow if too much is used.

Tip: To remove a tart easily from the tart pan, leave it out of the fridge for a few minutes before propping it onto a glass (or a bowl for larger tarts). Slowly pull down the outer part of the pan. You may have to be a little patient but it will slide down and once a little lose, sometimes it falls with a jolt as you’re pulling down! You can choose to remove the bottom of the tart pan from the shell or leave it on to serve.

*A reader has let me know that in America, cornflour is called cornstarch. Here in Australia, cornflour is the same as cornstarch. It is for thickening purposes and is white, not yellow.
