Portuguese Custard Tarts

I was requested to post some recipes. It is not that I am an expert cook or anything like that, but I like giving tea parties and baking. My sweet turns out better than my meals so I must be doing something right. I am going to post recipes of those that I like. Today I made Portuguese Custard Tarts and it turns out really well so, I will share the recipe with you.

Portuguese Custard Tarts
3 sheets frozen puff pastry
2 tablespoons custard powder
2 tablespoons caster sugar
400ml cream
Finely grated zest of 1 orange
1 teaspoons vanilla essence
Icing sugar, to dust
1. Preheat oven to 220'c/200'c fanforced. Cut each pastry sheet into 4 x 10cm circles to line a 1/2 cup capacity muffin pan. Refrigerate.
2. Stir together custard powder, sugar and 1/2 cup cream until smooth. Stir in zest and vanilla. Bring remaining cream to the boil in a small saucepan. Stir into custard. Return mixture to pan. Stir over low heat for 2 minutes until thickened. Cool for 5 minutes. Pure into prepared cases.
3. Bake on middle over shelf for 15 minutes or until pastry is cooked. Cool and dust with icing.
