I’ll always be a fan of local chef Helena Loureiro and was so excited when she came out with a cookbook entitled Helena’s Portuguese Kitchen – 80 Sunny & Simple Recipes.
I tried quite a few of her recipes, and I would say that even though she labels them as simple there is a little bit of intuitiveness required. For example, I ended up cooking these tarts far beyond her recommended time (double) and in one recipe she does not give an oven temperature.
I made these on a dreary day and they were just the simple type of custardy treat I love.
Her cookbook is unsurprisingly heavy on seafood and for me the real appeal was all the Portugeuse treats.
This recipe immediately jumped out because it is ULTRA easy and would be perfect for making with toddlers or small children. Give it a whirl. I’ve put her recommended cook time in but personally I cooked it for 1 hour.
