Cheddar Puffs


1 c water
1/2 c unsalted butter, cut into pieces
1/2 tsp salt
1 c all-purpose flour
4 large eggs
1 1/2 c finely grated cheese

1. PREHEAT oven to 450øF. To prepare pan, line two cookie sheets with Glad Bake paper.

2. IN A MEDIUM-SIZE saucepan, put water, butter and salt. Bring to a boil over high heat.

3. REDUCE heat and add flour all at once. Cook, stirring vigorously with a wooden spoon, until mixture pulls away from side of pan, about 2 minutes.

4. REMOVE from heat and cool slightly, then add eggs one at a time, beating well after each addition. After adding the eggs, mixture should be smooth and glossy.

5. STIR in grated cheese.

6. PUT teaspoonfuls of the mixture onto the prepared cookie sheets, leaving a one-inch space between each piece. Place cookie sheets in the upper and lower racks of the oven. Bake for 20 minutes or until puffed, golden and crisp.
