My Mothers Milk Tart

In loving memory of my mother, gone since 1975 but not forgotten, the best baker in all ways, Tossie Baker neé Thuynsma (Elisabeth).

Milk tart, sprinkled with cinnamon, is a South African dessert consisting of a sweet pastry crust containing a creamy filling made from milk, flour, sugar and eggs - best home made but is available at any bazaar cake table, home industry or supermarket.
