Super simple custard tarts, very easy to make using frozen puff pastry. Don't be fooled by the simplicity of the recipe, these are addictive!
Something else. The traditional way to line the cups is to take the sheet of puff pastry and roll it into a loaf, then cut slices and place the in the cups, pressing down so that the dough flattens and there is a bit of a rim of thicker pastry at the top. That way they come out with very crispy and flaky shells. - 29 Sep 2008
Something else. Excellent recipe! I used mini muffin cups, the filling was enough for 30, and I used 1 and a half packages of puff pastry. Everyone wanted the recipe. The smaller "pasteis" were just perfect for a sweet table. - 29 Sep 2008
This recipe is terrible! I balked at the 200g thinking it would be too much and it was! They're not so much custard tarts as sugar tarts. They might work with 1/3 or even less sugar... - 07 Dec 2014
