Chocolate orange cream cheese tarts

I made these for dessert yesterday with the help of my youngest boy. I knew he would be gleefully assisted me to make holes in the tart base with a fork. So after pressing the dough into the moulds, i had him making the holes...should see his ear to ear smile doing that...i copied this yummy desserts from Fantastic Cheesecake book by Alex Goh baking class book (picture below).

Recipes for tart base(Sweet pastry) :-

200g butter
100g icing sugar
1 egg
420g flour


Cream butter and sugar lightly. Add egg and cream till smooth. Add flour and mix until well blended. Press the dough into the tart moulds. Make holes into the base and bake at 180 degree for 15 - 20 mins or until tarts evenly brown. Cooled.


250g cream cheese
50g icing sugar

100g orange juice
50g instant custard powder
100g chocolate(melted

200g whip topping cream(whipped)


Beat cheese and sugar until smooth. Put aside. Mix juice with custard and add to melted chocolate until well blended. Mix with cream cheese mixture until well incorporated. Fold in whipped topping cream until evenly blended. Pipe into the tart moulds.
