Ingredients

Method

  • STEP 1

    Heat the oven to 220C/200C fan/gas 7. Oil or butter a baking sheet and set aside.

  • STEP 2

    Heat the milk, butter and salt in a medium saucepan and bring to a boil. Remove from the heat and add the tapioca flour. Stir vigorously, then leave to cool a little.

  • STEP 3

    Pour the dough into a standing mixer, or use a bowl and an electric whisk to beat the dough until its cool. Beat the eggs in one at a time, waiting until each is completely incorporated before adding the next. When the dough is glossy and mixed, add the parmesan. Beat again until mixed.

  • STEP 4

    Spoon the dough onto the baking sheet in 1 tbsp balls, 5cm apart. Bake for 30 mins until crisp and golden. Remove from the oven and eat while still warm.
