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

Brazilian Cheese Rolls


  • 1 cup sour cream
  • 1 cup finely grated parmesan cheese

  • 1 cup plus 2 Tbsp Yuca flour


  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Mix all the ingredients together.
  3. 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.
  4. Place on a parchment lined cookie sheet and bake in the middle of the oven for 25-30 minutes (Remember no peeking!)
  5. Remove from oven and serve immediately piping hot.
