VIDEO ON HOW TO MAKE EASY BRAZILIAN CHEESE PUFFS:
- 2 cups tapioca flour starch***

Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
Lightly grease 24 mini muffin tin with olive oil.

Meanwhile place milk, water, olive oil, and salt in medium sauce pan. Heat on medium high heat till it reaches boiling.
Remove from heat and pour over tapicoa flour.

Then add cheese and mix just a couple more seconds.
Pour equal amounts into muffin tin and cook in preheated oven 15-20 minutes till lightly browned.

*I used an Italian blend cheese. But you can use your favorite. I feel like they'd be good with a sharper cheese..Make sure that the cheese is finely shredded.
**Take egg out of fridge when you first start as it works better at room temp.
***Make sure to use 2 full cups packed down(don't skimp on flour)
the batter should be sticky & not runny.
Could also add some fresh chopped garlic into these or any of your other favorite herbs or spices.
I used a cookie scoop to put equal portions in muffin pan.
Can warm in oven at 250 degrees for about five minutes if storing in fridge.
