Seeing this recipe in foodgawker almost made me squeal. Okay fine, I let out a giddy yelp at the least. :) My only tweaks were to cut the egg filling recipe by 1/3 (I couldn't do fractions beyond that) and using half condensed and evaporated milks. I had about half a cup of condensed milk sitting in the fridge and I couldn't bear to throw it nor pour it all over toasted bread.

I turned out to be TOO crust-happy...but still giddy HAPPY :)
And on to a more important association with these egg tarts...
I used to bring home boxes of KFC egg tarts for my sister and dad... and it's their birthdays today!! So even if these egg tarts sitting in our fog-covered house in Costa Rica don't make it to her air-conditioned office desk in the Philippines and to the Japanese buffet in New Jersey (last Facebook check-in of my older sister with dad 2 hours ago :p), I dedicate these to them. :) Happy birthday Toots and Pa! :)

I DON'T CARE.
