  • 1 cup of whole milk
  • ½ cup of vegetable oil
  • 1 teaspoon of salt
  • 10 oz or 2 cups of tapioca flour
  • 2 big eggs
  • 1 ½ cups of grated Parmesan cheese


  1. Prepare the oven. The oven is preheated to 350 F. 2 baking sheets are lined with parchment paper.
  2. The milk, oil and salt are placed in a medium saucepan and they are brought to a gentle boil over medium heat and once in a while they are stirred. They are removed from the heat quickly after you see large bubbles coming from the milk.
  3. The tapioca flour is put into the medium saucepan and they are stirred with a wooden spoon until they are mixed properly. The dough is removed to the bowl of a standing mixer fitted with a paddle attachment. The dough is beaten for several minutes at medium speed until the dough soften out and has cooled down.
  4. With the mixer on medium speed, the eggs are added into the dough one at a time. You must wait until the first egg is totally blended or incorporated before you put the second egg.
