Pasteis de Nata are a classic Portuguese dessert and so yummy, sprinkled with a little cinnamon. I am looking forward to making these this weekend and sharing my comments.

Hello from Portugal,,the land and origin of these custard tarts. They are over one hundred years old and are the best kept secret in portugal. The original pasteis de nata are from Belem in Lisbon, all others are a copy which by the way the original pastery is made of phylo. This recipe looks good and l will try it. If anyone has the opertunity to have the original, l and thousands recomend them. Be prepared to wait in line for the hot custards and also to go off your diet because they are unrisitable. By the way, you eat them warm served with cinnamon. Enjoy!!

I agree with Chef #606274--this is from Leite's Culinaria and is Mr. Leite's recipe. (I have Ms. Avila's cookbook, and it's clear that this is original on Mr. Leite's part.) It's such a shame that this site allows for this kind plagiarism. I've seen it before, too. Visit Leite's Culinaria www.leitesculinaria for original recipes.

This recipe is from David Leite's website. The only difference is the first sentence in the introduction. At a minimum, there should be an acknowledgement to him. His recipe is here: www.leitesculinaria.com

I tried this recipe out twice and I loved it. It is also great dusted with cinnamon after being cooked. Thanks for a fabulous addition to my recipe collection!

Slight correction on the origin of these delicious tarts. The egg tarts at yum cha are CHINESE and completely different in taste and texture. Natas originated in Portugal, not in MACAO, the formerly Portuguese territory in China.
