I think my problem was buying cassava flour. It is really gritty in texture. It has to be refined further to yield the tapioca starch, which is the fluffy powder form needed for this recipe. Can someone confirm this?

Help! I just tried this today and utterly failed. I went to an Argentinian market and picked up "Julia cassava flour (farinha de mandioca, casabe)" and did my best to blend everything by hand. The dough was too dry and crumbly, and after baking, they turned into cheese scones! Was it wrong flour or inadequate hand blending that killed my attempt at cheese balls? :(
