My friend and colleague recently returned from Protugal, where she brought back these tasty little treats as gifts. They look innocuous and strange, like chalky hard candies with a too yellow center that could only be artificially dyed. However, when you bite into these little shells, you don’t experience chalky or hard textures. The surprise is a soft custard like inside surrounded by a wafer like thin and barely detectable outside. The middle is made out of egg yolks and sugar, and is truly the star of this delectable dish. I don’t know how difficult it is to make, but every pastry shop around should carry these! They satisfy the sweet sugary taste we all crave in desserts once in a while, without suffering from the overbearing richness that chocolate sometimes conveys. I recommend if anyone goes to Portugal or Brazil, give them a try! Absolutely delicious.
