How-To
If using a 12-cup tartlet pan, bake one 12-cup batch at a time, using 1 crust at a time and refrigerating the remaining egg mixture until ready to use.
Do-Ahead Tip
You can cover and refrigerate the egg mixture up to 24 hours, so you can make half the recipe one day and the remaining half the next day.
