Cheese puffs for Valentines Day

If you are not going out this Valentines and planning a quiet evening in just for the two of you, think of something special but simple for your supper. A bottle of champagne, lobster, chocolate covered strawberries and cheese puffs will work great.

You probably already know how to make the strawberries so let's make the cheese puffs together.
 You will need:
1 1/2 cups water
1/2 cup butter
1 1/2 cup flour
6 eggs
1 1/4 cups cheddar cheese, shredded
1/4 teaspoon dried thyme
1/4 teaspoon paprika
dash of cayenne pepper

Cut the butter into chunks and add it to the water. Bring the water and butter to a boil, remove from the heat. Add flour all at once and briskly stir until mixture is smooth with a wooden spoon.

Add eggs, one at a time, beating well after each egg. Stir in spices and cheese.

Preheat oven to 400'F. Line 2 baking trays with foil and spray it with the cooking spray.  Drop the dough on the trays with a table spoon to make a little even mounds. Bake about 30 to 35 minutes until brown.

Enjoy and  have a happy Valentines Day!

So glad I've found this recipe. My grandmother used to make these, we called it platkes, and when she died, many years ago, the recipe was gone too!
