Portuguese Milk Tarts (Queijadas de Leite)

– adapted from www.homemadeinterest.com


  • 2 cups Sugar
  • 1 cup Flour
  • 4 Eggs beaten
  • 1/2 cup Butter melted
  • 3 3/4 cups Origin Whole Milk
  • 2 cups Origin heavy whipping cream
  • 3 tbsp powdered sugar
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • Berries (strawberries, blueberries, raspberries)


  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.
  2. In a large bowl, combine 2 cups of sugar and 1 cup of flour.
  3. Whisk in beaten eggs, then add melted butter, continuing to whisk, and then milk.
  4. Pour mixture into greased muffin tin, filling them almost to the top.
  5. Bake on center rack for 30-40 minutes or until top is golden & crispy.
  6. Remove the tarts from muffin tin while hot by running a knife around the sides and carefully lifting them out. Tarts will be crispy on the outside and custard-like on the inside! Recipe makes about 18-20 tarts.
  7. To make whipped cream as an optional topping, add the heavy cream, powdered sugar, and vanilla extract to a bowl and attach to stand mixer or use hand mixer. Whip on medium speed for about 5-6 minutes until the cream is thickened. Do not over whip or else it will turn into butter.
  8. Once tarts have cooled, top with optional whipped cream and berries. Enjoy!
