Give these portuguese tarts a christmas twist using egg nog flavoured milk.
Ingredients3 egg yolks
2 tablespoons sugar
2 1/2 tablespoons cornflour
1 cup Oak Egg Nog
2/3 cup thickened cream
1 sheet butter puff pastry, thawed
1 tablespoon brown sugar
1 teaspoon mixed spice
1 tablespoon sugar, extra, for sprinkling
- Whisk yolks, sugar and cornflour in a heavy based saucepan until smooth. Gradually whisk in the egg nog and cream until smooth.
- Cook over medium heat whisking continuously until custard is thickened and just beginning to boil. Transfer custard to a bowl and press cling wrap onto the surface to prevent a skin forming. Refrigerate until cold.
- Sprinkle pastry with combined brown sugar and spice and fold in half. Roll up tightly along the longer side into a sausage shape. Using a serrated knife, cut pastry into 12 x 2cm rounds. Roll out rounds on a lightly floured surface to a 10cm diameter and press into 1/3 cup capacity muffin pans. Spoon cooled custard into pastry cases and flatten slightly with the back of the spoon. Sprinkle with sugar.
- Bake at 200°C for 20-25 minutes or until golden. Cool for 5 minutes in pans before transferring to a wire rack to cool completely.
