Strawberry Custard Tarts – my guilty pleasures!

Strawberry Custard Tarts

My Strawberry Custard Tarts are basically Pasteis de Nata with a Summer twist.

The Strawberry Custard Tarts  are made with only 5 ingredients and that is the amazing thing. I used Ultramel Custard, which is my guilty pleasure, by the way. So when I saw that I can now buy my favorite custard in a 125 ml serving with a straw, I nearly flipped. My problem is that the other members in my family share my guilty pleasure so I have to hide my stash. I am running out of hiding options.

I often rant about stock items you should have in your pantry and freezer and here is another good example of items I always stock. Store-bought puff pastry is always in my freezer, because sometimes life is just too busy for making it from scratch. There is just so much we can do with puff pastry. Savory mince gets a very sophisticated make-over rolled in flaky puff pastry. These cheese straws are so easy to make, the children can literally make their own snacks. For those with a sweet tooth, these Pear Tartlets will be hard to resist.

So without any further ramblings, let’s get baking!

makes 24

Ingredients

2 rolls puff pastry

1½ cups/375 ml Ultramel Custard

3 eggs

125 g strawberries

½/125 ml sugar

Method

Pre-heat oven to 180 C. Unroll the pastry and use a cookie cutter to cut out 24 x 6 cm pastry rounds. Spray 2 muffin pans with non-stick spray and place circles in the bottom of the muffin pans and press with fingertips to make pastry come up on the sides of the pan. It must form a little pastry casing. Mix the custard and eggs and fill all the pastry casings. Bake for 10-15 minutes. The pastry must be cooked and the custard set.

While the tartlets are baking, slowly heat the sugar in a small pot, until it forms a light caramel. Keep warm. As soon as the tarts are done, place slices of strawberries on the tarts and pour some of the caramel over the top. Dust with icing sugar just before serving!
