Brazilian Vegan Queijadinha

This is my version of the Brazilian Queijadinha. Queijadinha is just lovely, the saltiness of the "cheese" together with the sweetness of the coconut and sugar it's just delicious, put that together with the lightness of the puff pastry and you get a combination to die for.
I used Vegusto cheese because it's easy to find in London, but you can used any king of mild fake cheese you like. Indulge yourself and trust me you will make this one over and over again!! :)

1 sheet puff pastry
65g desiccated coconut
4 tbsp light brown sugar
80g No-Muh Resent Piquant Vegusto Cheese
100g single cream

1 - Defrost the puff pastry
2 - Using a upside down glass make circle cut on the pastry. Group the remaining pastry and roll so you don't waste pastry
3 - Combine together the coconut, sugar, single cream and cheese.
4 - Put two tablespoon of the mixture in the middle of the round pastry cuts and press the edges of the pastry together in four or six places to hold the mixture in the middle
5 - Bake it for 25 minutes on a pre-heated oven at 180c.

If you are not going to eat it all on the same day, re-heat it on the oven as it's a lot better. Enjoy!!!
