Trial & Error

At home, no celebration would be complete without "pãozinho" (pronounced pow-zing-yo). Bread rolls that are as light as clouds and melt in your mouth like cotton-candy. Sprinkled with grated Parmesan cheese, they are generously stacked in tiered trays, accompanying cold cuts, spreads or preserves. But even plain, the flavor is divine. Unfortunately, I have been unsuccessful in my attempts to reproduce this delicacy. I am yet to find a foolproof recipe that recreates the original creamy texture and lightness. Will keep trying...
