Durian Egg Tart

This is my 1st time making egg tarts and I picked the Durian Egg Tart from 'In The Mood for Pastries & Tarts' by Alan Ooi. Few days ago I saw a container of Durian Puree for sell in the local consolidated foodstore so I bought 1 thinking I will try and find recipes that uses durian puree.

All I can say is that the smell of the Durian is there but you cant taste the durian as there's no 'flesh' in it. Just pure pureed durian form. Hmmm I would like to try making this again when I get a real durian.
