Brazilians like to eat pomegranates for New Year’s celebrations to ensure good luck in the coming year.

Pomegranates are considered a symbol of fertility, prosperity, abundance and generosity.
We think they are perfect for Valentine’s Day, as well.

Bake your Pão de Queijo; and let them cool.
Mix fromage blanc with chopped rosemary, lemon zest, salt and pepper and a tiny squirt of fresh lemon juice.
Slice your pão de queijo in half with a serrated knife.

Pipe the mixture onto one half of your pão de queijo, top with pomegranate seeds and the other half.

Enjoy!
