I recently saw that Hawaiian Pie Company had custard tarts as their special of the day, so since I happened to be in the area, I stopped in and picked up one.
Looking at the size of the container, I am pretty sure that their tarts are the same size as their mini pies.
The difference is that the tarts are a short crust (shortening) and the mini pies have a flaky crust (butter).
Whenever I pass through Chinatown, I pick up a Lee's custard tart $1.25 tax included.
The Hawaiian Pie Company's is larger and costs a little more too...$3.66 (tax included).
Straight out of the fridge is how I like custard pie...this one was so good!
I'll be back!
