Brazilian Cheese Rolls

Brazilian Cheese Rolls
1 cup whole milk
¼ cup (1/2 stick) butter
¼ cup oil (I used more butter J)
2 cups plus 2 tablespoons tapioca flour
2 eggs
1 cup grated Parmesan cheese

Preheat oven to 350.

Combine milk, butter, and oil (if using) in a saucepan and bring to a boil on medium heat, stirring to melt butter and keep milk from scalding.  Once mixture reaches a boil, remove from heat and stir in tapioca flour. 
Stir in eggs one at a time and then add cheese.  Mixture will be very stiff.  Cool in pan until easy to handle. 
Take heaping tablespoons of dough with tapioca-floured hands and roll into balls.  Place on a baking sheet about an inch apart.  Bake for 20-25 minutes or until puffed and golden. Makes about 20 rolls.

I halved this recipe when I made it.  The first time I forgot to half the milk which meant I had to use more flour, but they still tasted great.  The second time I did it right, except that I used coconut oil instead of vegetable oil.  Coconut oil has too strong a flavor for these rolls, so in the future I will use only butter.  I also do not bother to roll them out, I merely blob them onto the baking sheet.  They turned out great.  Enjoy!!
