    I am an American attempting a UK recipe. When he says full fat milk is he referring to what we would call whole milk in America or what we would call cream? My cream is 5% fat.

    I was making a Paul Hollywood Recipe: pasteis de nata aka Portuguese tarts. I don't think I adjusted the measurements correctly. I didn't have whole milk but I used a combination of half and half and 1%. Regardless the custard set correctly but the pastry was under baked. It should also be noted that this was my first time making puff pastry from scratch.

    I love a custard tart and they look great for a first attempt - the under bake is just a good excuse to make more!

    Thats a great first attempt, we have a company over here called Nata & Co, who make the best potugese tarts I have ever tasted. Well done for having a good go:thumbsup2
