Recipe: Cheese Puffs

This cheese puff recipe is from the Twin Palms Restaurant in Pasadena California. They’re scrumptious!

Cheese Puffs Recipe

All you need:

1 cup water
¼ teaspoon salt
½ cup butter
1 cup flour
4 eggs
¾ cup shredded Swiss or sharp Cheddar cheese (I use Cheddar)
¼ cup grated Parmesan cheese
2 teaspoons dry mustard
1/8 of a teaspoon cayenne
1 teaspoon dry basil

All you need to do:

Pre heat oven to 350 degrees.

In a 2-quart pan, combine 1 cup water, 1/4 teaspoon salt and 1/2 cup butter.

Bring to a boil over medium-high heat, stirring to melt butter.

Add 1 cup flour, all at once; remove pan from heat and beat vigorously with a wire whisk until smooth.

Add 4 eggs, one at a time, beating each until mixture is smooth and glossy.

Beat in 3/4 cup shredded Swiss or sharp Cheddar cheese, 1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese, 2 teaspoons dry mustard, 1/8 teaspoon cayenne, and 1 teaspoon dry basil (or you can use oregano leaves, or thyme leaves).

Drop by spoonfuls (making balls about 1 1/2 inches in diameter) onto a greased cookie sheet.

Bake in a 350 degree oven for 25 to 30 minutes or until puffed and brown.

Turn off oven. Prick each puff in 5 places and leave in closed oven for 10 minutes to dry.

Serve warm, or cool completely, then freeze.

If made ahead, re crisp puffs (no need to thaw) uncovered in a 350 degree oven for 5 to 7 minutes or until warmed.

Makes about 36 puffs
