Chef John's Brazilian Cheese Bread (Pao de Queijo)

Getting your cheesy bread fix doesn't get any easier than with pao de queijo, Brazilian rolls that feature a chewy, cheesy, airy center, encased in a beautiful, thin, and semi-crispy crust. They also happen to be gluten free, thanks to tapioca flour, which is also responsible for the very unique texture. Joining the tapioca is a humble combo of olive oil, milk, eggs, and two different cheeses. You can play around with the flour and milk ratio; the resulting thickness will determine your baking implement. But your can't go wrong with scooping the dough, as shown here, onto a baking sheet. Serve these puffy, golden delights while still warm, to relish the chewy, stretchy texture inside. Get the recipe for Chef John's Brazilian Cheese Bread (Pao de Queijo).
