Gluten Free Pão de Queijo (Brazilian Cheese Bread)

26870_322083216723_1244996_n There are many, and I would like to stress again many recipes for this. This is the version we use. It is great to build sandwiches. This is one of our most used recipes.

  • 2 1/2 cups Tapioca Flour
  • 4 cups Shredded Cheddar Cheese
  • 2 teaspoons Baking Powder
  • 4 Eggs at room temperature
  • 1/2 cup melted Butter
  • 2 teaspoons Minced Dried Onions
  • 2 teaspoons Dry Dill
  1. Mix Shredded Cheese and melted Butter on Low Setting
  2. Add Eggs continue mixing until just incorporated
  3. Mix Dry Ingredients in a Bowl
  4. Slowly Add Dy Mixture to Wet
  5. Mix until completely incorporated
  6. scoop a couple of teaspoons of mixture
  7. roll into a ball
  8. flatten in the palm of your hand with your thumb. I make them about the size of my palm.
  9. Place on greased cookie sheet.
  10. Bake @450 for 8 minutes

These puff very slightly; so you can put them fairly close together.
You can also roll the balls and pinch slightly so they are about a half inch thick. Those will turn out like dinner rolls.
