An Eggy Sunday Afternoon...

Is 'eggy' even a word? After the Christmas baking frenzy, would you believe, I'm all out of butter?!? What the a heck? Butter is one of the building blocks in baking!!! My mind is on hundred miles per hour, wondering what dessert to make. Then AH HA! I remember that before the frenzy bug bit me, I recently found and bought TWO boxes of Pepperidge Farm Puff Pastry Dough and alas my parents just recently restock of fridge and I have dozens of eggs available, am I lucky or what? I quickly grabbed the Food Network book that I got on sale before, and went in search for the Portuguese Egg Tart, that I've been eyeing ever since I saw it.

It was such an easy procedure and the outcome are gorgeous and might I add yummy! The egg custard are soft bellied and the puff pastry crust are crisp, all in all such a light and indulgent dessert. But I must admit that in my excitement to make this that I miss read the instructions. I should have just cut my puff pastry dough into 6 pieces and not 12! But in the end, my mistake turn into my advantage because the custard that the recipe yielded was way too much for just 6 pieces, but just right with my 12 pieces.


I'm a nine to five pencil pusher who loves to play with flour and paper during my free time. Dreams of going to Europe and eat croissants and make pastries all day long!
