Swiss Cheese Puffs

This is a classic cheese puff that works great as a roll with dinner or a sandwich roll. Omit the cheese and you have regular puff pastry!

Swiss Cheese Puffs

1 c. flour
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp sugar
1/8 tsp cayenne pepper
pinch nutmeg
1 c. water
6 Tbsp butter
4 eggs
1 c. shredded swiss cheese
1 egg, beaten

Heat oven to 400 degrees and grease a cookie sheet. Combine flour, salt, sugar, cayenne and nutmeg in small bowl. Set aside.

 Bring water and butter to boil in medium saucepan over high heat, and boil until butter has melted.

Reduce heat to low; add flour mix all at once. Stir vigorously until mix leaves the sides of the pan and forms a ball. Stir about a minute to dry the mix. Remove from heat.

 Beat in eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition, until completely smooth.

Fold in cheese.

Drop by 1/4 cup fulls in a ring on prepared cookie sheet (as you see, I used a pizza pan). Brush with beaten egg.

Bake 30 minutes, turn oven off and leave in oven for 30 minutes.
