¾ cup all-purpose flour
½ cup sugar
3 large eggs

2 cups milk
1 Make the pastry crust. Preheat the oven to 300°F (150°C). To make the filling, In a bowl whisk the flour, sugar, eggs, butter, and vanilla extract to a thick, smooth paste. Whisk in the milk and transfer the mixture to a large measuring cup.
2 Rest the baking sheet that holds the pastry crust on the edge of the middle oven rack, and, holding it with one hand, pour the filling carefully into the tart crust with the other. When it is as full as you can make it without spilling, gently push the tart on to the oven rack and close the door.
