"Egg Tarts"

Why I Love This Recipe

Pastel de Nata is a classic and perhaps the most popular Portuguese pastry.

Ingredients You'll Need

3 sheets of puff pastry
margarine to spread the forms
150 gr. butter without sal
for cream:
500 ml of milk
1 lemon peel
1 cinnamon stick
60 gr. cake flour
500 gr. sugar
250 ml of water
7 egg yolks


In a pan, boil the milk with the lemon peel and cinnamon stick.

In a mixing bowl (with the help of rods), mix the flour and eggs.

And add it into the pan with the previous mixture, always mixing and heat very gently.

In another pan, boil the water and sugar for 3 minutes, after boiling and always mixing, slowly put everything in the first pan and allow it to stand.

Meanwhile, smear the muffin cup with margarine.

Extend the puff pastry and butter with the help of a kitchen roll and wrap up the most power in the cylinder. Tips: If you add more butter, the pastry will be crisp. That is optional. 50 gr per sheet of puff pastry.

Curl the puff pastry again. Cut into 3 cm pieces and placed in the form using your thumb finger (circular movements). Press thumb into the center of the swirl.

Fill each cup 3/4 of the way with custard.

And it takes the preheated oven at 250.º C for 20 minutes.

Bake until the pastry is browned and bubbly, and the tops start to blister and caramelize. Cool tarts briefly and serve warm with cinnamon powder.
