A Velvety take on a traditional Milk Tart. Warning: This will cause extreme mouthwatering!

For the Crust:
 150 g First Choice Butter
 2 packets Tennis Biscuits
For the Filling:
 1 tbsp First Choice Butter
 1 l First Choice Milk
 1 pinch salt
 1 cup flour
 1 cup sugar
 3 eggs
 1 tsp vanilla essence
 ¼ tsp almond essence
 1 pinch cinnamon
For the Butterscotch Layer:
 5 cups First Choice Butterscotch Velvet
 50 g First Choice Butter
 4 tbsp sugar
 1 tsp gelatine
For the Crust:

Place the biscuits in a ziplock bag and crush it with a rolling pin until it has the consistency of breadcrumbs.


Add the melted First Choice Butter to the crushed biscuits and mix together with your fingertips.


Press the cookie mixture into a springform cake pan and refrigerate for 15 minutes.

For the Filling:

Rub the First Choice Butter, salt, sugar, and flour together with your fingertips until crumbed.


Place the First Choice Milk in a saucepan and bring the milk to boil, then reduce the heat to a very low setting.


Very slowly add the crumbs to the boiled milk little by little, stirring with a whisk.


Be careful not to burn the milk or to work too quickly because if you do, the crumbs will form lumps.


Remove the milk from the hot plate.


Take the three beaten eggs and a little of the hot milk mixture. Now add the egg mixture to the rest of the hot milk mixture.


When cooled down, add the vanilla and almond essence. Mix thoroughly.


Place the mixture in the prepared dish and bake for 10 minutes at 250ºC and then reduce the heat to 200ºC and bake for another 10 minutes.


Sprinkle with cinnamon and then refrigerate.

For the Butterscotch Layer:

Heat the First Choice Velvet, sugar, and First Choice Butter in a medium pot until the sugar has dissolved and it forms a syrupy sauce.


Pour it over the milk tart and refrigerate until chilled.


Heat 1/4 cup of First Choice Velvet in the microwave and mix in 1 teaspoon of gelatine.


Mix well and chill in the fridge.


Whip up two cups of Butterscotch Velvet with the chilled gelatine butterscotch.


Put the mixture in a piping bag and pipe on top of the butterscotch layer.


Serve immediately.
