Portuguese Egg Tart

Is Portuguese Egg Tart getting too expensive and somehow had shrunk in size? Do you think or is it just me that the pastry is getting thicker and the custard is just a small dollop in the centre?

My family love Portuguese Egg Tart and I've decided to try my hand at it.  It's easy to make if you get the frozen puff pastry like I did.  It takes too much effort to make the puff pastry from scratch.  Look how fluffy and plump they look.




Makes 1 dozen:
2 sheets of frozen puff pastry

Custard:
1 cup sugar
250ml fresh milk
200ml whipping cream
1 egg
2 egg yolks
1/2 tsp vanilla essence

Mix all together till sugar dissolve, strain.
Line muffin trays or tart tins with puff pastry.
Fill 90% full with the custard filling.
Bake in a pre-heated oven at 180degree celsius for 20 mins and turn up the top heat for additional 8 mins to brown the top.

Serve hot!
