Pão de queijo is a common Brazilian tidbit, initially from the states Minas Gerais and Goiás. It’s not precisely known where and when it began; however, it is thought that it was around the eighteenth century, during the servitude time frame, in the “fazendas minerals” (ranches situated in Minas Gerais).
It was standard to serve the masters bread and espresso in the early evening (subsequently our “evening espresso” rather than “evening tea”). Nonetheless, in Brazil, wheat items just began being to a great extent created during the 20s, so the cooks needed to utilize manioc items. Those were generally accessible since they were used sometime before colonization. To make the bread, they needed to utilize custard flour (or manioc starch), and afterward, by blending it in with cheddar, they made the first pães de queijo from Minas.
The pães de queijo heated in wood-consuming ovens and were set up with fixings delivered in their own ranches.
Quick forward to the 50’s the point at which the formula got famous everywhere in the country and afterward again until these days when it’s well known about in the world.

Ready your oven with 400F degrees heat and adjust the baking rack n the middle.

Grab a stand mixer and put flour or cornstarch in it. Once the boil comes, pour the mixture into the flour. Turn on the mixer and let everything merge well. You will see your combination becoming sticky, very white, and fondant-like when it's mixed.
Once the mixture is done, keep the mixer on and add in the eggs, one at a time. As the mixture is already sticky, you may think the eggs are not mixing in, but you need to have patience and give the mixture its time.
Once you see the eggs adjusting, add in the cheese (both mozzarella and parmesan) slowly until it's mixed properly into the silky mixture.
Your dough is meant to be soft and sticky but if you feel it's too weak, add a little flour. But, make sure you don't overdo it, or your bread will turn out hard instead of gooey.
Turn off the mixer once the dough is ready and remove the bowl. Start making small balls of dough while using a scooper and a little cold water on your palms. Keep the size small of balls to make them perfectly.
