Cottage cheese is a seriously underrated food, and this recipe is proof. Cheese in general is very versatile, but cottage cheese in particular can be paired with a rather large variety of foods, and still taste great. Baking it into queijadinhas is an extremely smart move because there is no taste more satisfying than that of a sweet, buttery, creamy pastry with a mild cheese blended into the overall flavor. This recipe creates a warm, homemade happinness, as it has done for hundreds of years.

  • 2 whole eggs
  • 2 egg yolks
  • 200 grams sugar

  • 125 grams flour
  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 butter (spoon, soup of)
  • 1/2 lard (spoon, soup of)
  • (If you prefer you can buy shortcrust pastry which is also good and besides less work)


  1. Prepare the dough working the ingredients mentioned above, and knead well with about 0.5 dl of tepid water with a pinch of salt.
