My eight year old girls and I are having a little tea party tomorrow and we want to try out the teeny tart and pie tins my mother gave us. To make things easier, I have some refrigerated pie crust and a can of English custard. (I thought we'd also do some simple apple pastries with thin slices of apples, and some cinnamon sugar and butter.)
I assume we bake the little tart shells first, then fill them with custard, but do we bake them again with the custard?
Also, can I flavor the custard with lemon juice or will it curdle.
We're also making traditional tea sandwiches and we'll be drinking Arnold Palmers.
I hope the stuffed animals appreciate it!
