How to Make Savory Cheese Puffs !!! Standard Cream Puffs!!!

Step-by-Step

  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
  2. Boil first 4 ingredients over medium to high heat. Beat in the flour until the mixture sticks together and forms a ball. Remove from heat.
  3. 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.
  8. **** 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.
