Something for the kids.

Was busy in the kitchen today making a few things for the kids, we all love these Portuguese custard tarts, but find the the shop bought one are very sweet, so we make our own using whipping cream instead of milk and using just enough sugar to sweeten it a bit..to save a lot of time we buy the readymade puff pastry cups frozen, there really very good. Results I think is far better then what can buy..lovely ๐Ÿ˜Š

I just love Portuguese custard tarts but I've had to stop eating them as I have an intolerance to lactose and whilst I would normally not be too bad if I eat one, I just can't stop at one as I find them very moreish, but then of course, I end up with stomach ache. ๐Ÿ™

I can't just have one either, they are very moreish๐Ÿ˜‹ I think it would work very well if we used coconut cream instead of milk or cream. Must give it a try next time we make some more.๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ˜Š

Coconut cream sounds delicious. I wish we could buy them like that. ๐Ÿ˜‹

We are so alike ๐Ÿ™‰ Sometimes I prefer a spoon or two of Nutella rather then a chocolate bar. Rich delish soft chocolate ๐Ÿ˜‹ Oh I feel a๐Ÿฅ„ and jar rush coming too ๐Ÿ˜ณ

I think they would be very nice with using coconut cream to make the custard, I will give it a try next time we make some.๐Ÿ˜‹

It does sound like a good idea๐Ÿ˜‹(and after all you've got no shortage of coconuts) ๐Ÿ‘

The one on the tree now are very small and the one that are fully mature, am keeping them until they sprout, the water turns into a white creamy sponge that I really like.I can buy fresh coconut water from the market and let in stand in the fridge for an hour and the cream will separate from the water..perfect ๐Ÿ˜

We tried using sweeteners instead of sugar for baking cakes and cookies but the results weren't as good as using sugar, so we gone bake to using sugar keeping it as low as possible, brownies are about the only thing we been making for a long time so we all hot used to the reduced sugar content and really enjoy them, there still plenty sweet enough. ๐Ÿ˜Š

We buy the puff pastry cups frozen and put them in aluminium foil cups, it does make it very easy to do them, j learned how to make a perfect puff pastry when I was 13 years old, it really is very easy, just a bit time consuming..๐Ÿ™‚

Looks delicious ๐Ÿ˜‹ โ˜บ๏ธ I would love to have 3 please ๐Ÿ™ thank you

Hi Happyman4, These are so scrumptious ๐Ÿ˜‹๐Ÿ‘

I bet your family loved them so much as Iโ€™d like to have one for dessert today. ๐Ÿ˜‡

Thank you for sharing with us and hope to see many more of your creations. ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ™

Am going to make the Portuguese custard tarts with coconut cream next time as I think we would all like them..give it a try anyway ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ˜Š

That sounds great to use coconut cream substitute as perfect for lactose-intolerance crowd as I am. ๐Ÿ˜…

Canโ€™t wait to hear how it turns out if you would stick to whip cream or coconut cream. ๐Ÿ˜‹๐Ÿ‘
