Mini Portuguese Egg Tarts

Mini Portuguese Egg Tarts pictures (1 of 10)

I made these mini Portuguese egg tarts for a birthday party a couple of days ago and I just have to share the pictures above with you because they are simply too cute. Somehow the mini egg tarts tasted even better than the regular ones I made months ago. I am also entering this to “June 2007 Monthly Mingle – Birthday Party Bang” organized by “What’s for Lunch, Honey?” My friends loved these mini Portuguese egg tarts and I hope Meeta likes them too for her upcoming birthday…

    Tiga – Hehe, you posted the comment while I was still editing my post, thanks for catching the typo, fixed. :)

    Lemongrass – yeah, you are too lucky as you are in KL, just walk out and bakeries are easier available.

    For the love of food – yes, mini is the way to go now.

    Lucia – thanks for voting. :)

    Claude – this is not really an European dish, but I guess it was influenced by the Portuguese. These egg tarts are very very popular in Hong Kong, Macau, and places like Malaysia, etc. But I am sure there is a real European version of egg custard tarts.

    Pablo – haha, exactly. They are the best fresh out of the oven and I can pop many of these at once.

    Jackson – oh, thanks for your kind words. :)

    Cynthia – I hope to read your post when you make them. :)

    Bee Nee – thanks for your comment. I am not really that mini but I love mini foods of all kinds.

    Novice Baker – thanks for your vote (very pai seh!).

    Lydia – cute they are. :)

    Budding Cook – thanks for voting.

    Single Guy – yes, mini means you can eat double without having to feel guilty! LOL.

    Kama – thanks for your kind words. Actually many food bloggers got nominated so this is really not all that. ;P

    Meiyen – yes, so cute and so adorable, that’s why I love them. Thanks for voting for me.

    Downtown Newark, NJ is like Little Portugal and one of my best friend’s fiance is Portugese so I have eaten quite a few of those egg tarts. Personally, I prefer the Chinese version because of the flakier crust and softer custard. The Portugese version has a breadier crust.

    currently i am collecting pictures of desserts for assignment.
