Pao de Queijo

topic posted Tue, February 22, 2011 - 5:29 AM by  Padrinho
I never thought of this as traditional because we have it almost every weekend. Awesome cheese bread things. The more you mix them, the better they get. My wife and family are all Brazilian so I usually take this stuff for granted. We buy the starch in a little Brazilian variety store here.

Lino to pic

Pao de Queijo

· 2 cups sweet manioc starch or sour manioc starch
· 1 cup milk
· 1/2 cup margarine (I prefer butter)
· 1 teaspoon salt
· 1 1/2 cups grated parmesan cheese
· 2 eggs

1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.
2. Bring the milk, salt, and margarine to a boil.
3. Remove from heat.
4. Slowly add manioc starch, stirring constantly until thoroughly mixed.
5. Add the cheese and eggs.
6. Knead until smooth.
7. Form into balls approximately 2-inches in diameter and place on a greased baking sheet.
8. Bake until golden brown.
9. Eat while hot.
10. Makes 20 Pao de Queijo

If they get cold, or the next day, you can nuke em for about 20 seconds. My kids slather them with margerine.

    Ahh que bom! It doesn't get more brazilian than pao de queijo... You're lucky you have every weekend I am too lazy to make them lol the starch can be sooo sticky... I make mines the same but instead of margerine I use oil and I also add a little water to soften the dough because I dnt use a full cup of milk maybe few tablespoons of it... But I will definitely try your recipe. If you have a good recipe for homemade coxinha or any other brazilian dish please feel free to share :)
