DIRECTIONS

  • Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C).
  • Put the tapioca flour in a large bowl. Set aside.
  • Pour canola oil, water, milk, and salt into a small saucepan, and place over high heat. When the mixture comes to a boil, remove from heat immediately, and stir in tapioca flour, mixing with a wooden spoon. Set aside to rest for 20 to 25 minutes.
  • Stir the cheese and eggs into the tapioca mixture until well combined. The mixture will be chunky. With wet hands, form 1 TBSP-sized balls of the mixture onto an ungreased baking sheet.
  • Bake in preheated oven until the tops are lightly browned, 20 to 25 minutes.
  • Enjoy !
  • Note: The dough can be kept in the refrigerator for up to 3 days in an airtight container. The balls can be frozen and taken to the oven right from the freezer.
