Cook tapioca pearls as per package directions.

Combine custard powder with 200 ml Canadian milk, stir in the beaten egg. Set aside.

In a small saucepan, pour in Canadian evaporated milk and the remaining 300 ml Canadian milk together with sugar and butter. Stir on medium heat until well combined.

Stir in the egg mixture and continue to cook. Stir constantly while cooking until thickened. Lastly, add cooked tapioca pearls and mix to combine.

Pour mixture into oven-safe dish

Make crust dough. Combine butter, sugar, and egg first, then, add the flour, salt, baking powder, and vanilla. Mix thoroughly.

Crust dough will be sticky. Wrap with cling wrap and refrigerate for 20 minutes.
