Quejadinhas (coconut-cheese snacks) makes a delicious snack for Brazilians. But, we loved having this as dessert.
1 cup tightly packed fresh grated coconut
1 can (8-ounce) sweetened condensed milk
2 Tablespoons freshly grated Parmesan cheese
2 large egg yolks
1.Preheat the oven to 450°F.
2.Place all of the ingredients in a medium-size bowl and mix well.
3.Place paper cups into the cups of a muffin tin. Drop the mixture by the spoonful into the paper cups.
4.Place the muffin tin in a larger pan that has been filled with about 1 inch of water and cook for about 35 minutes and serve
Note: These will keep well if they are stored in a tightly closed cookie tin.
