Matcha Portuguese Egg Tarts Recipe


  1. Whisk egg yolks/egg, sugar, flour, matcha in small pot
  2. Gradually whisk in half and half and vanilla extract until smooth. Put on medium heat and whisk until it it is very warm but not hot (not thick)
  3. Preheat oven to 400F. Thaw 1 sheet of frozen pastry dough for 20mins. Cut in half and stack on top of each other. Should be 12cm in width
  4. Lightly flour surface. Roll up tightly. If it cracks, leave to thaw more
  5. Use a ruler and indent dough every 1cm and you should have 12 slices
  6. Flour surface again and a rolling pin. Roll dough to about 10cm circles
  7. Press into greased muffin tin. Pour runny custard into it (I strained the custard to get rid of lumps and to make it super smooth). Bake for 12-15mins or until pastry is golden and some burnt sugar spots appear
  8. Cool in pan and transfer to wire rack. Serve warm or cold. Can keep in fridge for few days.
