Cream Caramel ~ Updated



Cream Caramel is another favourite dessert in my family, especially my children.  The price of this egg custard has hiked tremendously recently, from RM 2 to RM2.80 for a takeaway which can be finished off in three gulps.  As always, homemade is the most economical  and you can rest assured that there are no unnecessary 'add-ons'.   I've made them before using soymilk but this time around, I'm using full-cream milk and the result ..... according to my girl, it's 'Yummy, Mum, keep this recipe!'

I could make both oil and water dough easily and there were no 'sweat and tears', LOL!  The pastries turned out nice and flaky and everybody gave their thumbs up for this dim sum, especially my dear grandnephew who asked for more!


Oil dough - Sieve the plain flour into a mixing bowl, add in the cold, cubed butter, mash with a fork and slowly combine to form a soft dough.  Wrap up with clingwrap and keep in the fridge for 30 mins.  (You can do this with a food processor if you wish),
