  • Grandma approved!
  • Hi! I am Angela and this is Catie.
  • Today, we are here at Helen's kitchen,
  • to show you how to make the famous
  • pão de queijo.
  • Pão de queijo is a Brazilian traditional cheese roll.
  • Ellie Markovitch has a recipe with only three ingredients
  • that you can find in the United States' supermarkets.
  • Ellie has a lot of great recipes and tips
  • and we're going to leave a link to her website, down bellow.
  • Let's start it!
  • We are going to need sour cream,
  • grated parmesan cheese
  • and yucca flour.
  • Tim got me this one, tapioca flour,
  • but you can use any type or brand.
  • Here is another type, tapioca starch.
  • We have this foil baking pan,
  • and now we know that to avoid the bread to stuck on the foil,
  • we can use parchment paper.
  • Besides a big bowl, we're going to need a measuring cup.
  • Up to this line is one cup.
  • We are going mix the three ingredients.
  • One cup of grated cheese.
  • I am using parmesan now, but you can try to mix some other kind,
  • like grated cheddar, if you like.
  • One cup of flour.
  • Later, while mixing the ingredientes,
  • we will see if we need a little more flour to reach the right consistency.
  • And the third ingredient, one cup of sour cream.
  • Now let's mix well.
  • You know that the consistency is right when it no longer sticks to your hands.
  • If it does, add a little more flour.
  • It's time now to make small rolls and fill the baking pan.
  • And as I said before,
  • our first batch was all stuck, because we laid the rolls strait on the foil.
  • Use parchment paper.
  • One recipe will make about 30 small rolls.
  • Now it's time to turn the oven on to pre heat: 350 degrees.
  • The oven is hot and ready, I'll place the pan in the middle rack.
  • It is important to keep the oven door shut.
  • No peeking.
  • Bake for 25 to 30 minutes. I'll try 28.
  • After removing from the oven,
  • let's transfer these golden delicious little rolls
  • to a cooling rack.
  • In Brazil usually you serve immediately, while they're still hot with coffee!
  • Let's see if Mom is gonna approve it.
  • Helen, that's for you to taste.
  • Thank you!
  • -Do you like it? -Delicious.
  • Grandma approved!
  • This is consumed in the Brazilian tropics?
  • In Minas Gerais, which is a state in Brazil, where it's consumed,
  • more than in other parts of Brazil.
  • And it is eaten as...
  • In the afternoon, with coffee.
  • -As a snack? -Yes.
  • If you have guests, you can make coffee and serve with it.
  • And if you have made it in the morning and have guests in the afternoon,
  • would you ever put them in the oven to warm them up a little?
  • They freeze it,
  • and you can bring from the freezer directly to the oven, and bake it.
  • Because it's good to eat it fresh, like this.
  • Pão de queijo.
  • Very good!

We show here how to make this traditional Brazilian snack called Pão de Queijo. It's a three-ingredient easy recipe. Enjoy and visit Ellie's website for more recipes. Check out our links below.


-- 1 cup of sour cream
-- 1 cup of finely grated Parmesan cheese
-- 1 cup plus 2 Tbsp of Yucca flour

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.

Mix the ingredients and make small balls by rolling about 1 heaping tablespoon of dough in the palm of your hand. Use the extra yucca 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.
