Pastéis de Belém

At the beginning of the century. XIX labored with the Jerónimos monastery a sugar cane refinery, whose product was sold in a small store attached. With the extinction of the religious orders in 1834, they were put on sale in this same store some small pastels that quickly became known as the “Crayons de Belém”. Your recipe remains the same and is now stored in the “Secret Workshop”. It is an unmissable delicacy of the city of Lisbon. The tradition of the Conventual confectionery is so rooted in our country, that all Portuguese towns and villages have some typical sweet Conventual. Forget the diet and indulge yourself!
