My pastel de nata, or custard tarts, aren’t quite classic, as they are laced with lemon, but hopefully they are simpler to make. The pastry dough, which is similar to puff, takes a bit of forward planning and needs to be started the day before you plan to bake. Nothing, in my opinion, compares to homemade, but if you’re short on time, then store-bought all-butter puff pastry would make an acceptable substitute. They are best eaten on the day of making.
