I would like to know also after pouring the custard the crusts, what are we suppose to do?..?...? Firstly the skin is to be baked blind, and the custard is never mentioned in the later stage.
Please give the full recipe.

I happened to pop by ur blog and saw two unanswered comments. I believed the last bit of the recipe is to bake the custard again for a couple of mins (say ~10mins) till it hardens. note that the pastry is not fully cooked else they will be burnt when the custard is still not ready yet
