Ingredients

  • 1 cup water
  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter or soy-based butter, like Earth Balance
  • 1 tsp salt, divided
  • 1 1/2 - 2 1/2 cups flour
  • 5 eggs
  • 1 cup Gruyere cheese, about 1/3 lb, diced
  • 1/2 tsp black pepper
  • 1/2 cup Gruyere cheese, scant 1/4 lb, grated

Preparation

  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
  2. Combine water, butter and 1/2 tsp salt in a pot and bring to a boil. Remove from heat and let cool slightly.
  3. Stir in 1 1/2 cups flour and mix well. Return pan to the heat and stir with a wooden spoon until the mixture comes away from the sides of the pan. Remove from heat.Mixing in flour.Coming away from the sides of the pot.
  4. Stir in the eggs, one at a time, until well combined. Add the diced cheese, remaining 1/2 tsp salt and 1/2 tsp pepper. Stir well. You may need to add up to another whole cup of flour depending on the consistency. It should be almost like a cookie dough. If it's too soft, they will spread out too much during the baking.After five eggs, the mixture may be too loose. If so, add up to one more cup of flour - adding 1/4 cup at a time and incorporating well.
  5. Drop the dough by rounded tablespoons onto a cookie sheet coated with cooking spray. Sprinkle with the grated cheese. Bake in batches for 25 minutes or until puffed and golden. Serve warm.
