Instructions Checklist
  • Heat oven to 400° F. Lightly coat 2 cookie sheets with vegetable cooking spray. In a medium saucepan, combine 1 cup of water with the butter, oil, salt, and cayenne. Bring to a boil. Remove from heat and add the flour all at once. Stir with a wooden spoon until the ingredients form a smooth paste.

  • With a wooden spoon, stir in 1 egg until completely blended. Repeat with the remaining 3 eggs. Stir in the Cheddar and chives. Using a teaspoon, drop balls of batter onto the cookie sheets. Bake 20 to 25 minutes or until the puffs are firm and well browned. Serve warm or at room temperature.

  • To keep for up to 2 days, cut a small slit in the side of each puff immediately after removal from the oven. Cool completely. Store in an airtight container.
