Spiced Apple Custard Tarts {from Lily Vanilli's Sweet Tooth}

I'm so excited that when this post is finally up I will be on my way to London to visit Lily Vanilli's bakery in East London. I can not wait!! Had to cancel my plans as my littlest one has a sick bug. London isn't going anywhere....already thinking of a date to reschedule! So, being the impatient person that I am I had to bake something from her book before I went! This past week I baked these very yummy tarts from Lily Vanilli's Sweet Tooth in anticipation of my visit to London!

It wasn't hard to choose as these Spiced Apple Custard Tarts were on top of my list since I read the book a few weeks back. I am not going to share the recipe with you as I think this recipe alone is worth buying the book..... also because I am know to be a bit lazy. It's not a hard recipe but there is a lot of time managing and steps to get right. First you make the pastry and its best if sat overnight or no less then an hour. So, I made my pastry the night before. Then the custard needs to be cold so it has to set for at least 4 hrs. I split my custard the first time.... oops. Then you make the apple filling (not pictured as once I started eating them I wasn't gonna stop for a picture) which needs to cool. Then you need to make the oat crumble for the top and roll and rest and bake the pasty that was setting over night. So basically I couldn't be bothered to write all that out.
However I don't want all my rambling up there to put you off making them if you have a copy of the book or someone you know does. These were absolutely delicious!!! I took them to 2 different friends houses and had nothing but compliments all around! Mine didn't look as neat and tidy as the book picture, but when they taste good who cares if they don't look perfect?!?
Can't wait to share my experience at Lily's with all of you later this week!!
