Matcha Portuguese Egg Tart @ 绿茶葡挞

I still remember the first batch of Macau Portuguese tart I made some time ago. It was so good that I can't resist to plan for further preparation but there always something to stop me. Since time is concerned, I need a quick preparation before other plan stopped me. I decided to get a ready made pastry. It works fine and good enough for me. No complaint at all... haha... Please read on for more.

Ingredients for Matcha egg filling :
140ml   full cream milk
75gm  sugar
a pinch of salt
220ml   heavy cream
2 egg yolks
1 whole egg
1-1/2 TB  matcha/green tea powder

Method :
(1)  warm milk together with sugar till sugar dissolved, then stir in green tea powder till cooperated and set aside to cool.
(2)  on the other hand, beat eggs and cream till well combined.
(3)  next, sieve green tea mixture into egg mixture and beat till well cooperated.

**Pastry Puffs : 5 pcs  8x8" sheets


Method :
(1)  roll one pastry sheet (8x8") into Swiss roll then continue roll another sheet to get a big Swiss roll, meaning 2 sheets to make one roll, then divide into 6 portions. So, 4 pcs to make 2 big roll then cut the final sheet into 2 portions and roll it up, where you can get 3 portions from the final sheet. You will have a total of 15 pastry cups.
(2)  now, press each portion of pastry into individual baking tin till a cup sheet is formed.

(3) finally, fill in each pastry cups with egg mixture then bake at preheated oven 230'C for about 30 minutes or till pastry became golden brown & crispy. Mine took about 40-45 minutes.

And here you are !!! These little babies turned out beeeeautifully and its tasty good too. Not just good。。。 its really really good !

I know you are going to beg me for one..... haha.....  Sorry guys ! You just have to make your own. I bet you're not going to stop at one. Happy baking everyone !
