Portuguese Custard Tarts

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!

I don't think I've ever rated anything one star before. Really, a failure all around. I used my stoneware muffin pan, cut the rounds of dough & rolled them out 1. the dough never cooked on the bottom, resulting in a doughy blob. 2. We salvaged the custard and it is just okay. Way too sweet, strange texture, too eggy, bland flavor. Would have preferred a pudding-like consistency. Won't make again and I love sweets & pastries!

Made them last weekend and they were super easy and delicious! I'm Portuguese, lived in Portugal for 28 years so I'm pretty familiar with these pastries and a huge fan!! The only thing I will try to change next time is the puff pastry. I'll try to make it thinner so it looks more like the original. I did add 2 cinnamon sticks and a little fresh squeezed lemon juice to the mixture in the pan - personal preference though! Thanks for sharing the recipe, a keeper!!

Delicious! But the sugar definitely has be cut down in half. A little too sweet but that's a personal preference. So easy to make and cheap as well. I am addicted to these and the bakery sells then for about $1 for one, and I can never eat just one, so definitely easier on my wallet when I make it at home.

Being Portuguese and knowing how Pasteis de Nata should be, I must say that this is an easy short cut way to make them, And you can tell with the end result. The custard was too sweet, and the store bought puff pastry doesn't even come close to making it yourself. It isn't as crispy or buttery as home made. I would make this as a quick craving killer, but would never make this recipe for company and call it pasteis de nata. They are good tarts though, and this recipe is a very creative way of reinventing a complicated recipe.

I live near a very big Portuguese community, while the elements are there, the recipes custard portion is way too sweet and not custardy enough. My son loved them but they were way too sweet for me. I was disappointed because I love pasteis de nata and was hoping to save myself from having to drive to Newark everytime I want to eat them.

baked these tarts the other day, even though they where very tasty and well received i felt that the custard was to thick and that it needed more milk adding to the mixture. i will attempt these again with maybe 75ml more milk added and see what happens.
