Milk tart (or Melk Tert) is a South African dessert pie. A sweet pastry crust is filled with a custard filling and topped with a generous dusting of cinnamon. Some milk tart recipes call for the custard to be baked but my favorite version is unbaked custard gently flavored with almond extract, vanilla and nutmeg set in a flaky pie crust. If you love custard-based pies, you will LOVE milk tart.

For the crust
 5 ½ cups flour
 ½ cup cold butter cubed
 1 egg yolk
 1-2 tbsp ice water
For the filling
 2 cups milk
 5 egg yolks
 ¾ cup sugar
 2 tbsp flour
 2 tbsp salted butter (alternatively use unsalted butter and 1/2 tsp salt)
 pinch of nutmeg
 2 tsp cinnamon
