Brazilians use versatile Pao de Queijo dough to make these flavorful gluten-free stuffed rolls. If the rolls aren’t eaten immediately, store cooled rolls in a closed container in the refrigerator for a few days. To soften chilled rolls, warm them briefly in the microwave.

1 recipe Gluten-Free Cheese Bread Rolls dough 
4 ounces mozzarella or dairy-free cheese of choice, diced into small cubes
¾ cup diced olives of choice
½ cup finely grated cheese or dairy-free cheese of choice, for rolling, optional

1. Preheat oven to 400°F. Grease a large baking sheet or line it with parchment paper.

2. Using a 2-tablespoon scoop or lightly oiled hands, form dough into 20 or 21 round balls.

3. Press a hole in the middle of each ball and stuff a small piece of cheese and 2 to 3 pieces of olive into each hole. Press sides together to close. (If hole doesn’t close, spray a little water on the dough to soften it.) Roll balls in grated cheese, if desired, before placing them on prepared baking sheet.

4. Place rolls in preheated oven and bake 25 minutes.
