You’re probably thinking – “does that mean Jesuit?” – and yes you are correct – this is the Jesuit pastry, another one of Portugal’s oddly named confections. We’ve previously noted the many religious names of Portuguese pastries, due to the fact that pastry-making was the purview of convents. Even today, many places say they specialize in “Doces Conventuais (convent sweets).” The Jesuíta is a little different than other Portuguese pastries, first for its triangular shape, but also for the fact that it is covered in a frosting glaze rather than egg cream or custard. The Jesuíta is a triangular puff pastry topped with a powdered sugar glaze, and filled with cinnamon egg cream, though in this case the type of filling may vary. Here is a Jesuíta recipe in Portuguese – I have found no recipes for this dish in English.
