Queijadas Economicas - Milk Tartlets

Being a mom I always look for desserts that are quick and easy to make but also the kind that everyone will enjoy and even think you took hours making.

These little portuguese tartlets are the kind I used to make back home while still in high school and let me tell you, my brothers loved them, there were usually none left by nighttime.

Note: You CAN add a tiny bit of cinnamon to the mixture, but traditionally you don't :)

  11. I am eating these as I speak. Absolutely delicious. Nice and quick too! I added a pinch of nutmeg and a drop of vanilla and then sprinkled with cinnamon-sugar once baked up. Wasn't sure if these were meant to be eaten straight from the oven or cooled in the refrigerator. So far i have tried them hot and love them. They are now cooling on my counter top. I really think i like portugese food! I am very eager to try more of your recipes. So far, so great! But it appears i'm too late in discovering this blog, have you abandoned it? :(
