Queijadinha
(Fake Quindins)

Sorry about the "fake," but that's what this Carioca called them (falso quindim). I met her in Costa Rica when my daughter was a little girl and it became her favorite dessert as she was growing up.

1 cup grated coconut

1 can sweetened condensed milk

2 Tbsp of sugar

2 Tbsp freshly grated Parmesan cheese

2 egg yolks

Mix all ingredients together and pour into greased mini-muffin tins. Bake in 350 F until golden brown on top (about 15 minutes). Let it cool a little and remove. Place in pretty paper cups. These were my daughter's favorite doces de coco when she was growing up.
