Cheese Tart/Torta de Queijo

For dough:
  • 9 tablespoons of wheat flour
  • 1 egg
  • 100 g margarine
  • a pinch of salt
  • 1 teaspoon of baking powder
For filling
  • 2 cups of mashed minas cheese (or any other cheese you'd like)
  • 1 glass of milk
  • 3 eggs (don't whisk them)
  • 1 tablespoon of melted butter

The "minas" cheese is a typical Brazilian cheese, but you can use any cheese you like for this recipe. This is my grandma's recipe and it's pretty easy to make.

  1. Dough: knead all the ingredients until it becomes not too sticky. Add flour if necessary but don't let the dough get too dry.
  2. Filling: mix all ingredients with a fork.
  3. Lay the dough on tart pan and add the filling.
  4. Bake in pre-heated oven until it turns golden.
