Make this last weekend, I got this recipe from "allrecipes", quite ok but a little bit too sweet for my taste. So if you want it to be less sweet, reduce the sugar amount.
Portuguese Egg Tarts (source: allrecipes)
1 cup milk
3 tablespoons cornstarch
1/2 vanilla bean
1 cup white sugar
6 egg yolks
1 (17.5 ounce) package frozen puff pastry, thawed
Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C.) Lightly grease 12 muffin cups and line bottom and sides with puff pastry.
In a saucepan, combine milk, cornstarch, sugar and vanilla. Cook, stirring constantly, until mixture thickens. Place egg yolks in a medium bowl. Slowly whisk 1/2 cup of 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 cups with mixture and bake in preheated oven for 20 minutes, or until crust is golden brown and filling is lightly browned on top
Mother of three and a homemaker. Love cooking & baking...
Actually I'm a woman of a few words, senang cakap I tak pandai nak berbual and if I visit other people blogs, I like to do it quietly without leaving a mark and that is actually my favourite past time...
