Chocolate Custard Tarts

Chocolate Custard Tarts

The Barossa is home to Careme Pastry, which makes excellent puff pastry, among other varieties. Every Saturday they have a stall at the Farmers’ Market selling a range of delectable cakes and pastries. Although they don’t make these particular tarts, they provided some of the inspiration for them. Crisp, buttery pastry with a warm chocolate custard filling are a match made in heaven. The custard can be made 2-3 days ahead.
