aka Brazilian Cheese Bread aka Cheese Puffs aka Pão de Queijo
Pão de queijo is a typical Brazilian snack, originally from the states Minas Gerais and Goiás. The base of the dough is cassava-root starch and cheese and these rolls have a unique chewy texture and flavor that is nearly indescribable.
Bake them to your heart's desire, crustier and tougher or soft and pillowy. Either way, fresh from the oven these golf-ball-sized rolls taste like warm, chewy sunshine and make perfect appetizers or on-the-go snacks.
