Brazilian Cheese Buns, Party Tray 30
The Brazilian cheese bun, known as "pão de queijo" in Portuguese, has a rich history that dates back to the 18th century. The exact origin of pão de queijo is a subject of debate, but it is widely believed to have originated in the state of Minas Gerais, a region in southeastern Brazil known for its dairy production.
The key ingredient in pão de queijo is tapioca flour, which is mixed with cheese, eggs, milk, and sometimes butter. The resulting dough is rolled into small balls and baked until they form a crispy outer layer with a chewy, cheesy interior. The use of tapioca flour is essential because it gives the buns their unique texture.
Pão de queijo gained popularity in the 20th century and became a beloved snack and breakfast item throughout Brazil. It is now a staple in Brazilian cuisine and has gained international recognition. Today, you can find pão de queijo in various forms, from homemade recipes to commercially produced versions in supermarkets and restaurants.
