pastéis de nata

I miss my little Portugal 😦 Specially the food! Last time that I went there, I made a checklist for: things to eat before I go back to USA. Oh yeah! 😉 We have such a great cuisine!!

But you know what? I’m very excited to know more about American food. I was born with this think that is: I need to taste everything! Yeah! I am JB, the explorer! For me, every single meal deserve to be tasted at least one time, or just one bite! lol But of course, the second bite have to worth it! 😉 I’m really curious about American food and lifestyle And I’m willing to learn some things..

But for now I leave you this lovely recipe. Is simply delicious!! These little custard tarts are very famous in Portugal and we usually eat them with our coffee (the expresso). Try with a little touch of ground cinnamon on the top ah! and warm 10 sec in a microwave…humm!

I’m salivating right now…

  1. In a sauce pan add 16oz of heavy cream, 8 egg yolks, 2 tablespoons of cornstarch dissolved  in 1 ¼ cups of sugar,  rind of 1 lemon, 1 cinnamon stick and 1 teaspoon of pure vanilla extract. Mix well with a whisk to ensure all ingredients are combined.
  2. Turn heat on to low stirring continuously and gently with whisk.
  3. Let cool completely. And then remove cinnamon stick and lemon peel.
  4. Preheat oven to 300F.
  5. Prepare the pastry shells with puff pastry. I usually cut with a glass to make a round shape.
  6. Put pastry on a muffin tray and fill 3/4  with pastry cream.
  7. Bake for 15 min.


Sinto falta do nosso Portugal! 😦 Especialmente da comida, pois.. A última vez que fui a Portugal fiz uma lista de coisas p comer antes de regressar aos states.. oh yeah babe! Nós realmente temos uma excelente cozinha!

Mas sabes que mais? Estou bastante entusiasmada em conhecer mais da comida americana. Eu adoro experimentar tudo. É verdade! Eu acho que todas as comidas têm o direito de serem provadas pelo menos uma vez, ou só uma dentada. A segunda dentada terá mesmo que valer a pena 😉 Mas pronto, tou muito curiosa para saber sobre o que se come por cá e conhecer também o estilo de vida. E claro estou disposta a aprender umas coisas…

Por agora vou vos deixar esta receita dos nossos pastéis de nata, que são tão bons com o nosso cafézinho! Aqui, só mesmo com o Starbucks 😉

Eu já estou duplamente a salivar já que iniciei a escrita deste post à coisa de uns minutos.. lol
