Equipment

Ingredients

  • 1 piece custard tart

Instructions

  • Wrap each individual tart tightly in plastic wrap or foil.
  • Place the wrapped tarts in a heavy-duty freezer bag.
  • Squeeze as much air out of the freezer bag as possible (I use a straw to suck the air out, but vacuum sealing is even better!).
  • Label the freezer bag with the contents and date.
  • Put the egg tarts in the freezer and consume them within 3 months.

Notes

If you want to avoid plastic, you have a few options. 
The first is to use wax paper instead of plastic wrap.
Or you can skip the wrap altogether and instead flash freeze the custard tarts before. 
Flash freezing is simple, spread the custard tarts out on a sheet pan and put them in the freezer for a few hours until they’re frozen solid. Then transfer them to your freezer bag, ready for long-term freezing.
