After trying a similar roll at a Whole Foods sample day, I pleased to find this GF recipe. Used coconut milk instead of dairy, next time will try dairy. Cooked full 20 minutes, made closer to 30 rolls.

This recipe turned out great. My husband is from Brazil and has been wanting me to try making these, forever. We used this recipe, and he said it was very similar to what he eats when he's home. Follow the recipe as is. I cooked them for the full 20 minutes.

You can also use butter, and even leave out the cheese, if you want. Very good basic recipe.
