Belem Cakes :)

Hi. There is something here in Portugal, and especially in Lisbon that is called "Belem cakes". In english it is called "custard tarts". It is sold regularelly here in Lisbon, and I suppose all over the country, since it is a traditional cake, from long ago. It is said that it has a secret, and that only in Belem, in a store called "Pasteis de Belem", I think, a place in Lisbon, near the river, they know the special secret to make the authentic "Belem Cake". Now, here is a recipe of these cakes I found on the internet, from the Lisbon City Hall. The exact translation of the name of these cakes from Portuguese to English is "Cream Cakes", like with the milk cream, which is sold in packages and is used to make chantilly cream. So, I noticed on this recipe that is in the link, from the Lisbon City Hall, that it really has cream (in the recipe). But, I also noticed that it has water. So, if you make this recipe with all cream, also instead of any water (or milk), it will become just like the real "Belem Cakes" from the only store in Lisbon (that I know of) that has the supposed secret to make these cakes in a very special way. You can use Bio ingredients, like eggs, maybe milk if you appreciate it (instead of water), cream, and flour, all Bio.
After being cooked, it's great with cinnamon on top, and maybe powdered sugar :)
Thanks so much. Here is the link to the recipe of the cakes from the Lisbon City Hall:
