"It's not corn starch but tapioca starch that is used in this recipe. That will make a big difference in the taste and texture...." See more"
"LOVE IT. You must used Tapioca starch. Anything else will not do this recipe justice. I love Pao De Queijo. If you are lucky you can find this prepackaged recipe in the supermarket. In the latin food..." See more section otherwise this recipe will make it pefect too. Obrigada. (Thank you in Portuguese)"
