Directions Step-By-Step

1
Preheat oven to 400 degrees.

Use an electric mixer in the pan (high speed). Beating well after each addition: add the eggs one at a time. It should be cooled and smooth. At this point add the sharp cheddar cheese mixing in well.
4
On parchment lined cookie sheet: Drop by spoonfuls the desired size you want your puffs to be (I use 1-1/2 teaspoons to 1 Tablespoon to make appetizers. You can smooth and round off the tops by slightly dampening your fingers for a more uniform look. Space about 2 inches apart.
5
Bake for 25 - 30 minutes depending on your oven. Cool on wire rack.
6
When puffs are cooled, slice across about 2/3 of the way up. Using a small spoon... scoop out any dough that is in the center of the puffs to make room for fillings.
7
Put your favorite savory fillings in. Over fill slightly and put the "lid" back on.

**** These are so pretty on a platter. Especially if you make differnt fillings.

**** The same goes for the sweet version.

**** Follow the same instructions for the sweet version of the cream puff shells.
