Three letters describe these little biscuit-like puffs: O!M!G! 'nuff said!
Okay, also maybe: THANK YOU to my friend Lisa who sent me the recipe for these little darlings. Check out her web site at www.thecardboardschoolhouse.com for more recipes and home-schooling ideas.
- Cheese Puffs
Recipe By Lisa Wilburn, www.thecardboardschoolhouse.com
1/4 cup butter, softened but not melted or runny
1/2 all purpose flour
1 cup shredded cheese (I use Calbot extra sharp cheddar)
3 tablespoons of feta cheese crumbled (optional)
Greek (or your favorite) seasoning blend, to taste (about a teaspoon for
mild and a tablespoon plus a few dashes of red pepper for spicy puffs)
Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
Mix butter and flour in mixing bowl and mix (stand on low mixer about a minute ) or
by hand until well mixed.
Slowly add cheese and seasoning and mix until the dough forms a ball (in a stand
mixer about another minute or until a dough comes together). If the mix is too
crumbly add a 1/4 teaspoon of milk and mix). Roll dough into 1 3/4 inch
balls or scoop with a 1 oz cookie dough scoop.
