Pao de Quejo, Cheese Puffs
pao de quejo, cheese puff thingies 
 
not exactly the brazilian version, but south american nonetheless. this is 
an adaptation of a more authentic recipe. parmesan, gruyere, or another 
relatively dry cheese should work; maybe even a well-drained feta, but 
then 
adjust the salt. spice them if you like. 
 
cassava starch = yuca flour = manioc flour = tapioca flour. if you cannot 
find it, process pearl tapioca in the food processor until it is ground to 
flour. 
 
2 cup  grated cheese -- something on the dryish side
1 cup  cassava starch, preferably sour
1-1/2 tsp  baking powder
1 tsp  salt or to taste
  cayenne to taste, if desired
12   eggs
  butter for the baking sheet
 
preheat oven to 425 degrees f. put the cheese, starch, baking powder, 
salt, 
and cayenne (if using) in the bowl of a food processor, with the steel 
blade. process just to mix and combine cheese into other ingredients. add 
the egg(s) and process until the dough forms a ball and rolls around in 
the 
bowl (3 minutes?). 
roll pieces of about 1 tablespoon into balls. space out on butter baking 
sheet or on a parchment-covered sheet (if cheese has relatively high fat 
content). baked until golden and puffed, 20 to 25 minutes. 
serve hot. 
makes about 3 dozen pieces
