Blue-Cheese Puffs

All You DECEMBER 2008

  • Yield: 35 puffs
  • Cook time:35 Minutes
  • Prep time:15 Minutes
  • Cost Per Serving:$.60

Ingredients

  • 1 cup whole milk
  • 4 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1 tablespoon finely chopped fresh thyme
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 5 large eggs
  • 5 ounces crumbled blue cheese

Preparation

Preheat oven to 400°F. Line 2 large baking sheets with parchment. In a saucepan, combine milk, butter, salt, pepper, onion powder and thyme and bring to a boil. Remove from heat, add flour and stir vigorously with a wooden spoon until combined. Return to heat and cook, stirring vigorously, until a dough forms and pulls away from side of pan

Remove pan from heat and let cool for 5 minutes. Add 4 eggs, 1 at a time, beating well after each addition. Dough will come apart with each egg and then come back together as you stir; add next egg after dough comes back together. You should end up with a sticky dough. Beat in cheese.

Drop dough by teaspoonfuls onto baking sheets. Beat remaining egg with 1 Tbsp. water and brush mixture on dough to glaze. Bake for 10 minutes, then lower temperature to 350°F and bake 20 to 25 minutes longer, until golden brown. Serve hot or at room temperature.
