Mennonite Cheese Puffs

Wow, Im really having a great time with these Mennonite recipes! I cant help it, they all look so good! Todays adventure was attempting these tiny delicious cheese puffs. They turned out grand! Perfect to dip in a big bowl of tomato soup. And the best part is, this recipe is completely versatile. Next time im going to throw in chopped bacon and chives :)

I will say that in order to get 3 dozen from this recipe you need to use only teaspoons of dough. I made mine more tablespoon sized and got 20 puffs. So you can make them any size you want. Oh, and mine were done in 17 minutes, not 20.

Also these do have a little cavity in the middle leaving enough space for filling. Im thinking how lovely a little cream cheese and ham would fit nicely inside...NEXT TIME!

These tender little savory puffs are a tasty addition to your party menu. They are quick and easy to make and can be served hot or cold.
