The origin of the Queijada de Sintra dates back to medieval times, there are records from the 13th and 14th centuries that refer to them as a form of payment. Unlike queijada, despite having roots that are lost in time, the travesseiro is more recent. The Sintra travesseiro is a sweet made with puff pastry. The filling is based on sweet eggs, almonds and sugar; goes to the oven and there he is. Before eating, preferably warm, it is sprinkled with sugar.
