Spanish term or phrase: quesesitas
El vendedor fue el ayuntamiento de la isla cuando lo traspasó a Juan de Ávila y, posteriormente, éste lo transfirió a Cristóbal Pérez Segura, el cual mencionaba tener a propiedad en su interior un llano “a onde hase unas quesesitas y una cuebesita canaria” (Quintana, 2016).

PS: I really should have chosen a lower confidence level because I'm totally guessing here... :)
However, I don't really see what else it could be and "-ecitas" is a diminutive suffix.

Cheesemaking and caves have gone together s¡nce well before refrigeration was invented. There are some examples near me, but I can't remember the Valenciano name for them...
