Yields Makes 15 tartlets
Egg yolk, sugar, and milk make a pleasingly dense filling for the light-as-air filo shells. Prep and Cook Time: 30 minutes. Notes: This recipe doubles or triples easily.

How to Make It

Step 1
1

Preheat oven to 325°. Arrange shells on a baking sheet and defrost at room temperature, 15 minutes. Meanwhile, beat egg white until watery but not foamy.

Step 2
2

With a fine-bristle pastry brush, generously brush inside of shells with egg white, gently working it into crevices. Bake until white is set, about 5 minutes.

Step 3
3

In a large measuring cup (or other vessel with a spout), whisk yolks, sugar, and milk to combine. Skim off and discard any foam on top of the mixture and let sit 5 minutes (this will ensure tarts with sunny, shiny tops). Pour into shells and bake until set, 8 to 10 minutes.
