Brazilian Cheese Puffs

READY IN: 35mins
Recipe by whisks

i love these cheese puffs. they are really wonderful with drinks and gluten free to boot - something i can offer a coeliac friend so they don't feel left out like they normally do. however, i've found that everyone i've offered them to loves them. i even made them when i went to london, and now my friend there can't stop eating them (or making them either). they are really cheesey and have a great chewy texture. tapioca flour is easily obtainable from asian grocery stores and the other items are pantry staples.

Excellent, just don't undercook. When it said don't overcook I was a bit paranoid and took them out too early.
