Hessian Cheese made like a Portugese pasty

Pasteis de Nata with Hessian cheese is very far from the sweet and flaky original, but the idea to serve a cheese cream inside of puff pastry tartelettes is not new.

They go so well with a dark red wine as appetiser finger foods.

Recipe for 10 -12 pastries:

1 ready made puff pastry
120 ml double cream
1 egg
1 pinch of nutmeg
Salt and pepper
1 tbsp flour
10-12 small sour milk cheese

Mix cream, egg, seasoning and last the flour in a bowl.

Cut puff pastry in 1 inch discs and stretch them until they fill up the Pasteis de Nata baking dishes. Do not forget to grease the baking dishes before you start.

Put a thin slice of cheese in each dish and fill up with the royal mix.
Bake at 200 C for 15 -17 minutes.

Enjoy them on the day you've prepared them.
