“Pastéis de Belém”

were created before the 18th century by Catholic monks at the Jerónimos Monastery in Lisbon.

It was quite common for monasteries and convents to use the leftover egg yolks to make cakes and pastries, resulting in the proliferation of sweet pastry recipes throughout the country.
