Easy Portuguese Egg Tart Recipe

Portuguese egg tarts! We drool at the sight of their fluffy pastry and soft, silky egg custard. Here's a simple recipe on how to make these yummy tarts, and we promise you that it will be super easy! No mixer needed, you will just need simple culinary tools. This recipe we are sharing here makes 25 tarts.

Ingredients :

500g ready-made puff pastry

For the filling:
300g milk
200g whipping cream
80g sugar
3 egg yolks
3 eggs
2/3 tsp of vanilla essence

Method :

1) Roll out the pastry to a rectangular shape about 4-5mm thick and then roll it up in a Swiss roll form. Chill until firm if its at room temperature.

2) While the pastry is in the fridge, start making the filling. Cook whipping cream and the milk until you see a bit of steam but not boiling. Stir in the sugar and heat until sugar fully dissolved. Remove from heat and add the mixture slowly into the beaten eggs and egg yolks in another bowl. Mix well. Add in the vanilla essence to the mixture. Set aside to cool.

3) After the pastry becomes firm, divide the pastry into 25g portions. Flatten the pastry and roll it out into about 3mm thickness. Press it into tart moulds.

4) Pour the filling into the pastry tarts. Then bake it at 220 degrees for about 20 minutes.

Note: Pastry shrinks when it's heated but do not worry about it, it will turn out fine!
