As the Timor countdown continues ... Portuguese tarts

As the countdown to my trip to Timor-Leste continues I'm ticking things off my list. Snorkelling gear borrowed (tick). Typhoid vaccination received (tick). Portuguese tarts made for tonight's dessert ... tick!

250 grams cream cheese
1/3 cup caster sugar
2 eggs
2 teaspoons cornflour
2 tablespoons lemon juice
2 puff pastry sheets, thawed

Preheat oven to 220 degrees Celsius. Lightly grease 18 patty tins. Cut pastry into 7 cm rounds. Ease pastry into tins. Beat cream cheese and caster sugar in a bowl until light and creamy. Add eggs. Beat until smooth. Blend in cornflour and lemon juice. Spoon mixture into pastry rounds. Bake for 15 to 20 minutes or until lightly golden.
