I'm sorry to say I really did not like the finishing product on this one...maybe I didn't make them right because they sunk in the middle and were so sweet and oily.

Queijadas WITHOUT cheese???? What's next? Chocolate pie without chocolate?? Queijo = Cheese in Portuguese, you know? I live next to Portugal and I swear these are not Portuguese Queijadas, no way.
