Wine Spots Monterey Chardonnay

Cheese Puffs

Wine Spots Monterey Chardonnay makes an excellent wine and food pairing for this recipe.

Makes about 30 puffs

Ingredients:
1/2 cup water
1/2 cup milk
6 Tbsp butter, cut into small pieces
1 cup flour
4 eggs
3/4 cup shredded gruyere cheese
Salt
Pepper
Nutmeg

Directions:
Preheat oven to 400F.

Combine water, butter, milk and a pinch of salt in a saucepan. Bring to a boil. With a sturdy spoon, add the flour and stir until well blended and the dough pulls away from the sides of the pan.

Remove from heat, put into a bowl and let cool for about 2 minutes. Add one egg at a time, mixing well after each egg is added. Stir in shredded cheese into the dough.

Put dough into a pastry bag with a large tip. Pipe out small mounds (about the size of a quarter) onto parchment lined baking sheets and dust each mound with pepper and fresh nutmeg.

Bake for 17-20 minutes until golden.

Serve warm.
