Please… what size rectangular dish should i use.
Hi Pamela, Thank you for trying out this recipe. Looking at the ingredients and the picture provided, my guess would be that it should fit in a standard pie pan which is 9 inches in diameter and 1-1/4 inches deep. Please note that I have not prepared this specific one myself, but received it from Feriel, a member of one of my FB groups.
You can also use a bigger size, it may not be as high, but still awesome. I truly hope this will help. Once you made it, I will truly appreciate your time to leave us a rating and review on this recipe. Enjoy this awesome No bake Milk tart.
Thank you very much for your input.. but I like to cut the tart into squares… so wondered what size rectangular dish/ container.
Hi Pamela. Sorry that I misread your original question. I guess that anything like a deep 9 inch will work. When you prepared the crust a have it ready you should be able to see from that the size of the dish to use. As long as its deep to keep all the filling it should work. If its a bit on the big side the crust will be thinner and the filling will not be at high but it will still be perfect. It’s rather difficult to give exact size so you have to try out what you have available. I am sure that you will be able to work it on it once you made the crust and filling as that will help you decide. Please let us know what you used then I can update and add your comment and experience here.
Thank you very much.
I truly hope it will work out well. Please keep in touch and let us know. Enjoy the making and above all the eating of this delicious treat.
