Cooper’s Cheesy Balls


1 cup of sour cream (DO NOT USE LOW FAT or FAT FREE…THEY WILL FLOP)
1 cup of finely grated Parmesan cheese
1 cup plus 2 Tbsp of Yucca and/or Tapioca flour (Bob’s Red Mill)


Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. 
Make small balls by rolling about 1 heaping tablespoon of dough in the palm of your hand. Use the extra yucca flour to prevent the dough from sticking to your hands. Place on a parchment lined cookie sheet and bake in the middle of the oven for 25-30 minutes (Remember no peeking!) Remove from oven and serve immediately piping hot.

    Anything with cheese, pleases me. LOL when I first met my husband he said, most people consider staples, bread and milk, you consider rosemary, Parmesan cheese, bacon and hot sauce yours.
    These look delish Cooper! Thanks for sharing!

    I am dreaming of slathering some swag on cheesy balls. Plan on making some this weekend, because I am in the mood to cook, so the weather has finally cooled down here in Texas.

      I think I also mentioned in the recipe you can use Tapioca flour. Bob’s Red Mill carries it and it’s everywhere.

    I have never heard of or used Yucca flour. That’s a new one. Do you think I could use Fat Free Sour Cream?

    I think you could serve these at a new event (produced by Mark, of course) called the Cheese Ball! I would definitely buy a ticket and wear my dancing shoes.
