Cheddar Cheese Puffs

Ingredients: (makes 12 cheddar cheese puffs)

57g unsalted butter

¼ tsp salt

½ cup water

½ cup all-purpose flour

2 eggs (beaten)

62g shredded cheddar cheese

1 tsp chopped fresh thyme

1/8 tsp ground white pepper

Preparation Instructions:

  1. In a saucepan, add the unsalted butter, salt and water and bring to a boil over high heat.
  2. Turn heat to low and add the all-purpose flour. Stir rapidly. The mixture will form a dough ball that will pull away from the sides of the pan.
  3. Remove the pan from the heat and transfer the dough into a mixing bowl and let the dough cool for a couple of minutes. Stir so that the dough cools more evenly.
  4. Gradually add in the beaten eggs, stirring after each addition until the eggs are incorporated into the dough.
  5. Stir in the grated cheddar cheese, chopped fresh thyme and ground white pepper.
  6. Preheat oven to 220C.
  7. Spoon out a heaping tbsp of the dough onto a silpat lined baking sheet, with 2-inch spacing from each other.
  8. Bake at 220C for 10 minutes. Lower the heat to 180C and bake for another 20 minutes, until puffed up and lightly golden.
  9. Remove from the oven and leave to cool completely on a wire rack before serving.
