How to make it

  • Place the sugar and 6 egg yolks in a saucepan and mix them together with a spoon.
  • Add the cream and the cinnamon stick. Place the flour in a small bowl. Take some of the cream mixture and stir it into the flour until it forms a thick cream consistency with no lumps. Then add the flour mixture to the saucepan with the cream.
  • Gently heat for about five minutes allowing it to thicken to the consistency of custard.
  • Roll the pastry onto individual cups and pour the cream mixture. Place in a pre-heated oven, 375F/180C, for about 15 minutes or until golden.
  • Remove from oven and sprinkle with cinnamon before serving.

    Ana:
    thanks for the history of the tart, great to know it. Adding cinnamon stick makes the custard more flavorsome, great recipe.

    I'll make these when my brother comes to visit in 1-1/2 months, for him & my mother ~ all of us lived near Lisbon & so have had them at the famous bakery, as well as in other parts of Portugal.

    Obrigada outra vez, Ana!
