A Tropical Touch In Regional Sweets: Queijada De Piña Colada
Portuguese sweets that melts in your mouth: queijadas are a temptation!
Queijadas are a traditional Portuguese sweet that dates back to the 18th century. The original recipe was made with fresh cheese, sugar, cinnamon, and egg yolks and was a popular candy among the nobility of the time.
Over time, the recipe underwent changes and several recipes emerged, some simpler and others more elaborate, but all of them have in common the characteristic flavor of cheese, which is the main ingredient.
The fresh cheese used can be of various types, but is generally a soft cheese with a mild consistency and flavour.
For the dough of the queijadas, wheat flour, sugar, butter and eggs are needed, among other ingredients. The preparation of the dough is done manually or with the help of a mixer, and it is important to obtain a smooth and homogeneous consistency.
This way, queijadas are a very versatile dessert and can be eaten on any occasion, either as a dessert after a meal, as a quick snack, or as an accompaniment to coffee or tea.
