Cheese Puff Ring
|Milk||1 Cup (16 tbs)|
|Butter||1⁄4 Cup (4 tbs)|
|All purpose flour||1 Cup (16 tbs)|
|Shredded swiss cheese||1 Cup (16 tbs)|
Heat milk and butter in a 2-quart pan and add salt and pepper.
Bring to a full boil and add the 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 and beat in (by hand) 4 eggs, one at a time, until mixture is smooth and well blended.
Beat in 1/2 cup of the cheese.
Using an ice cream scoop or a large spoon, make 7 equal-sized mounds of dough in a circle on a greased baking sheet, using about three-quarters of the dough. (Each ball of dough should just touch the next one.) With the remaining dough, place a small mound of dough on top of each larger mound.
Sprinkle the remaining 1/2 cup cheese over all.
Bake on center shelf of a 375° oven about 55 minutes, or until puffs are lightly browned and crisp.
