Pao de Queijo

This is a Luana classic...thought it would be good to post it up.. :)

Pao de Queijo

1 lb Tapioca flour
160 ml water
100 ml oil
salt (to taste)
2 eggs
4 oz grated cheese (any hard cheese)
1/4 cup yogurt

Add salt to the oil and water and heat it to a boil in the microwave (45 seconds max.). Mix it with the flour until homogeneous (the flour will have a wet appearance). Add the eggs, yogurt, cheese and mix with your hands. Shape it into small balls and either bake or freeze.

Baking
(fresh or frozen) - pre-heat the oven to 350F and bake cheese balls for 25 minutes or until the buns are golden.

Enjoy! :)
