These delicious little custard tarts originate from Portugal where their called pasteis de natas, they are thought to have been created by monks before the 18th century. I absolutely love them and always choose them if I’m lucky enough to go to a coffee shop or bakery that sell them. I added a fruity little twist with the addition of tropical passion fruit which works really well with the sweet, creamy custard.
I have to admit I did cheat and buy ready made puff pastry. So they really were so simple to make. Admittedly their no Great British bake off show stopper, no ornamental pastry lion here, but I do think they would get top marks for tasting blinkin amazing.
I’ve been doing quite a few on line food shop orders recently its just so convenient although I have really missed my lengthy peruse around the supermarket, also this week I ended up with four bags of bananas instead of four bananas so I feel a banana bread coming on. What are your thoughts on on line food shopping, do you use the service?
