  • 150 grams butter, soften (2/3 cup) I used Trebol brand
  • 2 eggs
  • 200 grams Paraguay cheese, grated (2 cups) I used Trebol brand
  • 25 grams Parmesan cheese (1/4 cup)
  • 500 grams cassava four (4 cups + 1 tablespoon)
  • 100 ml milk ((1/2 cup + 1 teaspoon)
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 to 2 teaspoons anise seeds


  • In a large bowl, beat the butter until creamy. Add the eggs one by one and continue beating. Add the two kinds of cheese and the anise and beat until you have a creamy mixture.
  • Add cassava flour and salt. Mix by hand. Put the mixture on a flat surface and start kneading. Little by little add milk. Taste the dough for salt. Cover with a cloth and let stand.
  • Preheat oven to 425 ° F / 232 C and grease two baking sheets.
  • Knead the dough for about 3 to 5 minutes. Or until you have a very soft dough. Divide the dough into 20 equal portions and give it the shape you want.
  • Bake for 20 minutes or until golden brown. Remove and let cool.
