Ellie Markovitch’s “Paeo de Queijo” - Cheese Bread

Brazilian Cheese Rolls


  • 1 cup of sour cream

  • 1 cup of finely grated parmesan cheese

  • 1 cup plus 2 Tbsp of Yuca flour


Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
Make small balls by rolling about 1 heaping tablespoon of dough in the palm of your hand.  Use the extra yuca flour to prevent the dough from sticking to your hands.  Place on a parchment lined cookie sheet and bake in the middle of the oven for 25-30 minutes (Remember no peeking!) Remove from oven and serve immediately piping hot.
