Over 250 years ago in a monastery in the hills of Lisbon, a sinfully delicious dessert was created by the mostly heavenly nuns: a thin puff pastry shell filled with sinfully smooth custard made from the very best and wholesome ingredients. So creamy, delicious and enticing was this creation that it traveled the sea, transcended ethnic boundaries and has claimed the desire of dessert lovers throughout the continents. The Pastel de Nata or Portuguese Custard Cup is the perfect combination of crispy crust and smooth creamy custard decorated with dark caramelized spots.
While the original recipe is a great-kept secret, our very own secret recipe for Pinho’s Famous Custard Cups has been passed down through the generations of talented our family bakers. Still made true to the original high standards, we only use the best ingredients to make these sinfully light (only 140 calories), no trans fats. While our mouthwatering Custard Cups have enticed thousands of local admirers, we are now proud to be able to offer them to all dessert aficionados. Available baked or frozen ready to bake, these wonderful perfect single-serving desserts are ideal for elegant dinners, evening coffee dates or any time you want a little indulgence. But buy an extra dozen or two...you’ll need to share the goodness.
