I'm intending to do a lot of baking this weekend so I thought I'd get a head start since Dorie says that these lovely little cheese puffs can be mixed, frozen, then baked when you want to eat them. Seemed like a great idea to me!
I got everything ready since the directions require you to stir the flour in vigorously.
Then I set the milk, water, butter and salt to boil.
When the liquid is boiling, I added the cup of flour all at once and stirred like mad. It very quickly formed a ball but I kept stirring to dry out the dough a bit. So far so good!
Then I beat in five eggs, one at a time and finally the grated cheese.
It was easy to scoop out the dough onto parchment paper. I intend to bake these on Sunday so I popped 33 of them into the freezer.
But I saved out 4 because I just had to taste them ToDaY. They baked up beautifully and boy are they yummy; just the right texture and the perfect cheese flavor. I would have taken another picture of them on a pretty plate but before I realized what happened, I had eaten them all. A real winner of a recipe!
