You got a recipe, buddy?



This is the recipe I use and they taste alot better than shop bought. I've also tasted ones from Portuguese cafes here in the UK, and they don't taste as good as these.

Servings: Makes 12

Preparation Time: 25 minutes, plus cooling time and 5 minutes standing

Cooking Time: 40 minutes

Ingredients

3 egg yolks (or 2 egg yolks and 1 whole egg)

115g /4ozs caster sugar

2 tbsp cornflour

230ml/8.11fl ozs Cream

170ml/6fl ozs Milk

2 tsp vanilla extract (or Vanilla Bean Paste)

300g/10.6 ozs rolled puff pastry

Method

Step 1 - Lightly grease a 12-hole 80ml muffin tray.

Step 2 - Put the egg yolks, sugar and cornflour in a pan and whisk together. Gradually whisk in the cream and milk until smooth.

Step 3 - Place the pan over a medium heat and cook, stirring occasionally to make sure that it doesn't catch at the bottom, until the mixture thickens and comes to the boil. Do not overstir as this can cause the custard to split and butter to ooze out. Remove from the heat and stir in the vanilla extract. Transfer the custard to a bowl, cover the surface with cling film to prevent a skin forming and leave to cool.

Step 4 - Preheat the oven to 200C.

Step 5 - Cut the pastry dough sheet in half, put one half on top of the other and set aside for 5 minutes. Roll up the pastry tightly from the short end and cut the pastry log into 12 x 1cm rounds. Lay each pastry round on a lightly floured surface and use a rolling pin to roll out until each is 10cm in diameter.

Step 6 - Press the pastry rounds into the muffin tin. Spoon the cooled custard into the pastry cases and bake for 20-25 minutes, or until the pastry and custard are golden. Leave the tarts in the tin for 5 minutes, then transfer to a wire rack to cool completely.
Lidls ones are much nicer
Clearly haven't met my ex-missus
Doubt they've been anywhere near Portugal.

If i was to describe HUKD 'community' i would say it's like the crowd that gathers in the supermarket just before the staff come out to 'yellow sticker' the sandwiches while in the background a loop of really *really* bad seventies 'comedy' plays
I find all the supermarket ones horrible and completely overpriced. I make my own and they taste a million times better and also they are really cheap to make.

Asda's own brand stuff is crap compared to lidl/tesco

Portuguese tarts mmm, in competition with our Manchester tarts.

In their defence, Asda do some bloody good onion rings and Yorkie buttons are never more than £1. That's about it.

Homemade is always going to be better but unfortunately for most people now it's work work work & with what little time is left you don't want to be in the kitchen working! So can you please bake me a batch

@Master_Yoda what type of cream please?
Toptrumpet16/08/2019 13:14

@Master_Yoda what type of cream please?



I would use single cream. You can also use milk if you don't have cream. Also, as with any recipe, you can tailor it to your own tastes.

Aldi do the best ones
Also - I like to lightly dust them with some icing sugar and cinnamon.

These are nice, but I prefer the tart behind the wet fish counter.
Trying to 'price match' the 49p ones from Lidl's bakery section I think
I prefer the mass produced ones with the nutmeg on.

Lovely, but not the same! These are made with puff pastry.

I know what they're like, i've bought them from Lidl.
Still prefer the old classic ones and they have a better custard to pastry ratio. Plus half the price.

Aren't these baked and the others set inside the pastry?
Considering the vast array of tarts available in Britain, it is a bit of a stretch to boldly claim that these are one of the best.
