Queijadas (Portuguese Custard Tartlets)

Tara Pacheco


Pronounced "kay-sha-das". These little guys are a traditional Portuguese dessert. Think of them as little custard filled cupcakes! I was inspired to bake them after a family member brought them to a party I hosted this summer. They are excellent served warm, but are just as good when cooled. They will just MELT in your mouth!
