One of my Dim Sum favorites. It’s not 100% traditional, but it’s close and very satisfying.

Water Dough
1 cup flour
1/2 stick (4 tablespoons) butter, softened
2 tablespoons warm water
1/2 teaspoon sugar
pinch of salt

Combine flour, sugar, and salt
work butter into flour until well combined
slowly work in water by hand
knead until the dough forms
wrap dough in plastic and let rest

Divide dough into 8 even pieces
press each piece gently into greased tart pans or muffin tins
allow to rest in fridge as you preheat the oven and make filling

Preheat oven to 425°F

1 egg, room temperature
3 tablespoon sugar syrup
1/2 cup whole milk
1/2 teaspoon vanilla

Beat egg well
mix in sugar syrup, vanilla, and milk
fill each shell

Reduce heat to 400°F
bake for 15-20 minutes, or until custard is set

Let cool to room temperature or serve while still warm.

#persimmons are plentiful this time of year. 'What to do with them?' is always the question. I'm considering apple & persimmon #handpies a #smallbatch #audreycancook It's going to be a #smallbatch #thanksgiving this year. #audreycancook #indigo dyed #shibori pillows
#audreycancook Another #leftover creation, skillet #appletart, a #smallbatch #audreycancook Skillet chicken #enchiladas a #smallbatch.  A great recipe for clearing out the fridge. On the blog soon. #audreycancook I've been working on a recipe for #icecream made without a machine. They're all over the web. I'm still not convinced, it's overly sweet and the texture is like frozen mousse. #audreycancook
