When we go to Dim Sum my kids love these little custard tarts. When I make them at home, they are gone as soon as they are cool enough to handle. This recipe comes from the Australian Women's Weekly Chinese cooking class cookbook. NOTE: The yellow food coloring can be omitted from the custard, but it does give the deep colored custard that is characteristic of these tarts.
