Gluten-Free Pão de Queijo

Pão de Queijo (Cheese Buns) I got this recipe from a fellow blogger. They are for Cheese Buns. It is a Brazillian recipe. They are naturally Gluten-Free and I am told they are served almost everywhere in Brazil. I hope to go someday, but in the meantime I will cook their food.

Here is what you need:
1/2 cup water
1/2 cup milk
1/4 cup canola oil
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 cup tapioca starch
1 egg
1/2 cup of grated Parmesan cheese

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Bring to boil in a big pan the water, the milk, the oil and the salt.

Remove the pan from the heat and add the tapioca starch. Mix well with a wooden spoon and let it cool down. It will be a really thick mixture.
Put the mixture in a bowl, add the egg and knead well. or put in the kitchenaid mixer with the paddle attachment.

Add the grated cheese and keep kneading until the dough is smooth.
Roll 1 tablespoon of mixture into small balls.
Place the balls onto a greased baking tray.

Bake the cheese buns in oven at 350 degrees for about 20 minutes or until golden brown.
Put the cheese rolls in a basket and serve them warm.
