Portuguese Egg Tarts 葡式蛋挞

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

Portuguese Egg Tarts which originated from Portugal is also a famous sweet treat in Macau Chinese Cafes. The tarts are buttery with a flaky, crispy pastry and a blistered custard top and it’s a must eat for visitors whenever they’re in Macau. It’s quite easy to make these yummy tarts but is quite challenging if you want to make your own puff pastry at home. So an easy way out, I ‘cheated’ with ready made store bought frozen puff pastry. You can prepare the pastry in the tart moulds and store them in the chiller 1-2 days ahead or in the freezer, so that you can use them as and when you like.  Mixing the custard is really easy with just a few minutes of stirring. Then strain the egg liquid 2-3 times through a sieve for a smooth yummy custard and bake for about 25-30 minutes to golden. So perfect to serve these yummy egg tarts at any time of the day.
