Pastel de nata (plural: pastéis de nata) is a Portuguese egg tart pastry dusted with cinnamon.

Years ago, egg whites were used for starching clothes, particularly nuns’ habits, which meant they had a lot of egg yolks left over. The yolks were often used to make sweets and pastries, and this led to the invention of sweets like ovos moles, queijadas, and of course pastéis de nata,” . This dessert was invented by monks at the Jerónimos Monastery in Belém, which is now a neighbourhood in Lisbon.”
