Pão de Queijo – Traditional
- 1 ¼ cups (150 g) tapioca flour check the health aisles at your store or on Amazon
- ¼ cup (28 g) shredded parmesan cheese
- 2 tbsp (20 g) shredded mozzarella cheese
- 1 tsp (3 g) salt
- ¼ cup (60 ml) olive oil
- ½ cup (120 g) skim milk
- 1 egg
- Preheat your oven to 400°F.
- In a saucepan, add the oil, milk and salt. Bring to a light boil and remove from the heat.
- Slowly add in the flour a few spoonfulls at a time and stir to incorporate.
- Once the flour has been incorporated, use your hands to knead the dough slightly and allow it cool a bit.
- Add in 1 beaten egg and stir, then add in the cheese. It should look almost like a thick cottage cheese.
- Spray a sheet pan with oil and create balls using a cookie scoop. Place the balls 1 inch apart.
- Bake for 20 minutes or until golden brown.
- These are best after they have rested for a while. The day after is when I prefer to eat them because they become much softer.
