These Portuguese custard tarts are quite simply the yummiest bake I have ever made. They are made with a silky custard and a crisp pastry, sprinkled with icing sugar and cinnamon. If you don't want to make the pastry from scratch you can use a ready made shortcrust pastry which tastes just as good. They don't take long to make and only need 9-11 minutes in the oven.
I unable to post the recipe as it's from rick steins long weekend book that accompanies the series of the same name. Shown on BBC Two last autumn, the series visited over ten European cities . I got his book for Christmas and it has become one of my favourite recipe books. The photo's inside are as stunning as the recipe themselves. I have included some picture here just in case you are curious.
Hey Rick! Where are you going next weekend........................
