First of all a Big thank you to everyone for all the comments on yesterday Pier photo, especially to Dave, Mistere,and Simon for their precious user awards, I really didn't expect this. Today back to food and a small Saturday Shadow. I have included the recipe in case anyone wants to try it, they are so easy to bake and well worth the eat.

Serves: 12

1 (500g) packet puff pastry
225ml (8 fl oz) milk
3 tablespoons cornflour
200g (7 oz) caster sugar
1/2 vanilla bean
6 egg yolks
Add recipe to shopping list

Method

Prep:20min Cook:20min Ready in:40min

Preheat oven to 190 C / Gas mark 5. Lightly grease a 12-cup muffin tin and line bottom and sides of cups with puff pastry.
In a saucepan, combine milk, cornflour, sugar and vanilla. Cook, stirring constantly, until mixture thickens. Place egg yolks in a medium bowl. Slowly whisk 1/2 of the hot milk mixture into egg yolks. Gradually add egg yolk mixture back to remaining milk mixture, whisking constantly. Cook, stirring constantly, for 5 minutes, or until thickened. Remove vanilla bean.
Fill pastry-lined muffin tin with mixture and bake in preheated oven for 20 minutes, or until pastry is golden brown and filling is lightly browned on top
Tip

If you've made a recipe, such as a pavlova, which calls for lots of egg whites and no egg yolks, you can freeze the yolks and then make a yolk-heavy recipe like this later! For best results, lightly beat the yolks first with a generous pinch of sugar for each yolk. Freeze in freezer bags.

I've not had a Portuguese tart since I was in Lisbon in the '60s (early). And very nice it was too, washed done with a Vino Verde. You've got to stop teasing these
lady's Patricia, bad for the waist line. Keep baking, look forward to seeing more.

40 minutes, to make 12 tarts & each one gone in 2 bites, Patty..?
I don't think your baking would keep up with the consumption rate....!!
Especially since they look so good Grin
