A crowd favorite baked potato soup from scratch with all the comforting goodness you want on a fall or winter's day. If you want to know what to do with leftover baked potatoes, this is a great way to use up leftover baked potatoes! Or maybe you just bought too many potatoes?
This soup is an easy way to use some of them up!

The answer is yes! If you don't want to go through the effort of making your own puff pastry, you can definitely take the short cut and use frozen puff pastry. I used Pepperidge Farm Puff Pastry Sheets and it worked like a dream. In the future, I would like to do it 100% from scratch, but it's nice to lower the barrier of entry. ANYONE can make this!
How To Make Pastéis de Nata Custard Step-by-step
- Whisk 3 tablespoons of flour with 1/4 cup of milk until smooth
- Bring 1 1/3 cups granulated sugar, 1 cinnamon stick, and 2/3 cup of water to boil. Do not stir this, but let it boil until 220F or 100C
- Scald 1 cup of milk (237ml) in a separate small sauce pan. Whisk scalded milk into the milk/flour mixture.
- Take the cinnamon stick out from the syrup and pour it into the milk/flour mixture, whisking the whole time. Stir in 1/2 teaspoon of vanilla.
- Whisk the yolks from 6 large eggs in a bowl. Then whisk them into the milk/flour/syrup mixture.
- Strain this thin mixture into a bowl.

Tips for using Frozen Puff Pastry to Make Pastéis de Nata
How long does it take for frozen puff pastry to defrost/thaw from frozen?
In general, thaw at room temperature for 2 hours or overnight in the refrigerator.
It's important to let the pastry thaw or else you will break it when you try unroll it from the package.
Once the pastry is thawed, you are going to lay it flat on your work space (I used this large cutting board) and then roll it tightly into a log. Wrap it in plastic and refrigerate until you are ready to assembly your Portuguese custard tarts!
See this CupcakeJemma video below for the technique:
Assembling Pastéis de Nata
When do you eat a Pastel de Nata?
Should you eat Portuguese custard tarts hot or cold?
There's no wrong way! Some people love them warm, others like the texture of the custard better when it is at room temperature. Still others like them cold! The only way to decide is to try them all three ways, don't you agree? ;-)
Do Pastéis de Nata need refrigerated?
In most instances, there won't be any left over since they are so tasty! But on the off chance that you do have left overs it is recommended that you store them in the fridge.
How do you reheat Pasteis de Nata?
Reheating a pastry like this is best done in an oven or toaster oven over a microwave, for sure. 350F around 7 minutes should do the job!
How long do Pasteis de Natas last?
In an airtight box they may last up to 2 days. If refrigerated around 5 days. But seriously, just eat them today. :)

A huge thanks to Keisha from Kansas, USA for submitting this family recipe for
Salvadoran Sopa De Frijoles (bean soup)!
This recipe was passed down to her from her mother-in-law and sister-in-law. How cool is that?!
Salvadoran Sopa de Frijoles is traditionally cooked over an open flame with a clay pot. You can imagine how much flavor that imparts. Keisha nicely explains the difference as being "like cooking a steak in your kitchen or on the grill.... Either way, it's still pretty tasty!"
