admin's picture
  Milk 1 Cup (16 tbs)
  Butter/Margarine 1⁄4 Cup (4 tbs)
  Salt 1⁄2 Teaspoon
  Pepper 1 Dash
  All purpose flour 1 Cup (16 tbs) (unsifted)
  Eggs 4
  Swiss cheese 1 Cup (16 tbs), shredded

Heat milk and butter in a 2-quart pan and add salt and pepper.
Bring to full boil; add flour all at once, stirring over medium heat about 2 minutes or until mixture leaves sides of pan and forms a ball.
Remove pan from heat; by hand, beat in eggs, one at a time, until mixture is smooth and well blended.
Beat in 1/2 cup of the cheese.
Using about 3/4 of the dough, make 7 equal mounds with an ice cream scoop or large spoon.
On a greased baking sheet, place mounds of dough in a circle with each mound touching the next one.
With remaining dough, place a small mound of dough on top of each larger mound.
Sprinkle remaining 1/2 cup cheese over all.
Bake on center rack of a 375° oven for about 55 minutes or until puffs are lightly browned and crisp.
