Pão de Queijo (brazilian cheese bread)

Based on 0 ratings

"This is a typical Brazilian food that means "cheese bread." It's from Minas Gerais mountain area and usually a breakfast dish or a between meals snack. In the future, when you feel comfortable, try to put some water too (like 20-40ml): this will produce a more stick starch, but your bread will grow up like hell!"
