    C. Taylor's Note:

    These custard tarts are absolutely delicious! I got this recipe off allrecipes, submitted by John J. Pacheco, and wanted to put it here for safe keeping. Hope he doesn't mind. You could probably substitute vanilla extract for the vanilla bean. I liked the fact that this recipe uses milk istead of heavy cream.

      These tarts are very good, but they do not compare the the ones I've had from Portuguese bakeries. I do like the fact that they do not use whipping cream, so I will probably make them again.
