?Pćo de queijo? is typical Brazilian and it?s a delicious snack, which can be found at every ?lanchonete? in Brazil. This recipe makes about 70 small cheese rolls. Tapioca starch can be found in Asian grocery stores. It comes in a clear plastic bag and the standard pack has 450 grams. Brazilians usually knead the dough by hand. It?s really hard work. I prefer to use a mixer to knead the dough. ?Pćo de queijo? can be served as an appetizer or snack. ?Pćo de queijo? can be frozen and baked directly from the freezer. Tip: Place the cheese rolls on a tray lined with baking paper. Put the tray in the freezer. When the cheese rolls are frozen, put them in a plastic bag and put them back in the freezer. You can find "pćo de queijo" mix (Yoki) in Brazilian supermarkets. It's very practical and convenient for those people who don't have time or don't like cooking. "Pćo de queijo" is gluten-free.
