PORTUGUESE MILK TARTS

PORTUGUESE MILK TARTS

WHAT ARE QUEIJADAS DE LEITE?


Queijadas de Leite means "Milk Tarts" and they are a conventional Portuguese sweet that you will discover at each festival. Portuguese Milk Tarts are made with milk, eggs, margarine, flour, and a little cinnamon sugar for flavor. That is it. Excessively basic, and flavorful.

HOW TO MAKE PORTUGUESE MILK TARTS {QUEIJADAS DE LEITE}

1.    Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.
2.    In a large bowl combine sugar and flour.
3.    Whisk in beaten eggs, then add melted butter, continuing to whisk, and then milk.
4.    Pour mixture into a greased muffin tin, filling each cup to a little more than ¾ full.
5.    Bake on the center rack for 30 mins or until sides and top are golden.
6.    Remove the tarts from muffin tin while hot by running a knife around the sides and lifting them out.
7.    Sprinkle with cinnamon sugar.

CAN QUEIJADAS DE LEITE BE MADE AHEAD OF TIME?

Yes! Since Portuguese Milk Tarts are served at room temperature they can be made 1 day ahead. Once you have made them let them cool completely then place in an airtight container and store in a cool place. Before serving take them out and let them come to room temperature.

TIP: Place your Queijadas de Leite in cupcake liners after they have baked and cooled. That makes it easier to move them around.

As the Queijadas de Leite bake in the muffin tin the outer edges crisp up and form a crust. The inside is this sweet, soft filling that melts in your mouth. Add a little sprinkle of cinnamon sugar on top and you have a classic Portuguese dessert that is sure to impress your friends and family.
