Mini Portuguese Custard Tarts: a recipe that is truly emblematic of Portugal in a mini version!
The egg custard tart is a moreish dessert, made from combining a custard filling with crisp puff pastry. Its unique taste comes from its perfectly balanced lime, Ceylon cinnamon and Madagascan vanilla flavours, together with the caramelised taste of its “burnt” top.
These Portuguese egg custard tarts are available in 25 g servings. This mini version is ideal as a sweet treat or for dessert at the end of a meal as part of a café gourmand, buffet or even a meal tray.
