Step 1: Line a cookie sheet with parchment and set aside.
Step 2: Combine the yuca starch or flour, cheese, baking powder and salt in a food processor, blend to mix well. SEE NOTE IF MAKING BY HAND INSTEAD OF FOOD PROCESSOR.
Step 3: Add the butter and eggs, and process until balls begin to form. If it's too dry to form balls, add water or milk, one tablespoon at a time, as needed.
Step 4: Remove the dough from the food processor and roll into a ball. If you're making these in advance, you can store the ball in the refrigerator up to one day.
Step 5: NOTE: to make by hand, melt the butter and allow to cool. Combine all the ingredients in a large bowl and mix until you have a smooth dough.
Step 6: Make small round shaped breads with the dough and place on the lined cookie sheet. Put the sheet in the fridge for 30 minutes before baking.
Step 7: Preheat the oven to 500F. Once it reaches 500F, turn on the broiler, then place the cookie sheet on the middle rack and bake until the breads are golden, about 5-7 minutes. ALTERNATIVELY, you can preheat the oven to 400F and bake for about 5 minutes. Then turn on the broiler until the breads are golden, careful that they not burn.
Step 8: Serve immediately. They can be eaten alone, or with Tree Tomato Aji.
