Portuguese Cream Tartlets
5 egg yolks
1 cinnamon stick
Lemon peel of half an organic lemon
500g puff pastry
Insert Butterfly. Place milk, cream, sugar, flour and egg yolks into mixing bowl, mix for 10 seconds on speed 4.
Add cinnamon stick and lemon peel, cook for 18 minutes at 90ºC on speed 2. While cooking, pre-heat oven to 200ºC.
If necessary, roll out puff pastry on a non-stick surface to 3mm thick layer. Cut out 12 round shapes (10cm in diameter) large enough to cover the inside of the muffin tray cups. Place a round shape into each cup.
Remove and discard cinnamon stick and lemon peel. Pour filling into the cups, do not fill right to the top. Bake for 25-30 minutes until the custard is set and browned on the top. Cool in the muffin tray for 15 minutes before transferring to a cooling rack. Enjoy warm or cold.
