Rice empanadas (gluten free!)

In Bolivia they make these delicious treats and I miss them. So...we made up this recipe to try to imitate them. They are NOT exactly the same but delicious nonetheless. PLUS...they are gluten free!

1 cup rice flour
1.5 cups of shredded tasty cheese (any tasty cheese that will melt nicely works)
1 cup of cooked cassava (also known as tapioca or yucca)
3 tbsp butter (we used olive spread)

1. Mix all the ingredients in a bowl. If too dry, add milk or oil or more butter.
2. Make patties and put in a baking tray. They do not leave too far from each other since they won't expand ro rise.
3. Bake in pre-heated oven until they are slightly golden brown on the top and darker around the edges.
