    It's a shame that the photo displays such pale custard pies. It does do them any justice.

    We love these tarts when in Portugal and these are the closest we have had to the proper pastis da nata

    Everyone liked these and they were so easy to prepare. I made mine in smaller muffin pans which gave me 18. They did sink down a lot in the middle on cooling - I'm not sure if this is usual. Someone suggested that a dollop of cream in the middle would be really good, so I'll try this next time. Mascarpone cheese might also work. Thanks Wendy, I'll definitely be making these again!
