8 ounces butter​
2 cups flour​
1 teaspoon salt​
2 tablespoons sugar​
¼ cup ice water​


6 egg yolks​
1 can (12 ounces) evaporated milk​
1 can (14 ounces) sweetened condensed milk​

  1. Cube the butter and freeze it for approximately 30 minutes to an hour. In a bowl, whisk together flour, salt, and sugar, then chill the mixture in the refrigerator for about 30 minutes.
  2. Incorporate the butter into the flour mixture. Either use a pastry blender or blend the butter into the flour by pinching it with your fingers until the mixture resembles coarse cornmeal with pea-sized, butter-speckled pieces.
  3. Slowly add ice water to the flour-butter mixture, and with your hands, mix until just combined. Gently gather the dough and shape it into a ball. If the dough is too crumbly and does not hold together, add more water one tablespoon at a time. Be cautious not to add too much liquid and avoid overworking the dough.
  4. Wrap the dough with plastic wrap and chill it in the refrigerator for at least 30 minutes or up to 2 hours.
  5. Preheat the oven to 350°F.
  6. Meanwhile, in a bowl, blend together egg yolks, evaporated milk, and condensed milk until well combined. Strain the custard mixture using a cheesecloth.
  7. Divide the dough into 12 portions. Place each portion between two sheets of parchment paper and gently flatten it with a rolling pin until it reaches a diameter of 4 inches and a thickness of ⅛ inch.
  8. Spray the holes of a 12-hole muffin pan with nonstick cooking spray. Lift each flattened dough and place it into each muffin hole, gently pressing on the sides and bottom with your hands. Trim off any excess dough from the edges.
  9. Fill the prepared dough-lined muffin pan with the custard mixture, filling each hole up to ¾ full.
  10. Bake in a 350°F oven for approximately 20 to 25 minutes or until the crust is golden and a toothpick inserted into the middle of the custard comes out clean.
  11. Remove from the oven and allow to cool before removing from the pan. These tarts are best served at room temperature.
