Brazilian Cheese Bread - Pão de Queijo


Cheese Bread is one of the most traditional foods in Minas Gerais State, where I was born and raised. They are little buns with a crackly, crusty exterior and soft center, made mainly with cheese and tapioca flour. They are perfect with breakfast or lunch, or simply as a snack with juice, coffee or even a soft drink.

Lulu shares her beloved family recipe for Brazilian Cream Biscuits - traditionally served high tea-style with a collection of "divine treats" but instead of tea, served with local, freshly-harvested coffee. Mmmm!

Brazilians sure do make great buns - like these awesome cheese buns that are quick and easy to make, require no yeast - and no wheat flour either. This traditional cheese bread is made with tapioca starch instead and your choice of sharp tangy cheese - like parmesan. Leaf shares this great recipe and technique for making these savory treats that are crisp on the outside and chewy in the middle. I'm so making these - thank you!
