How to make it

  • Preheat oven to 425°F.
  • Lightly coat 2 baking sheets with cooking spray or line with parchment paper.
  • Combine water, butter, oil, salt and cayenne in a medium saucepan; bring to a boil over medium heat.
  • Remove from heat and add flour.
  • Stir with a wooden spoon until it forms a smooth paste.
  • Return the mixture to low heat and cook, stirring, for about 3 minutes, to dry the paste slightly.
  • Remove from heat and cool for 2 minutes.
  • Lightly whisk together whole eggs and 3 egg whites.
  • Beat one quarter of the egg mixture into the flour paste with a wooden spoon until absorbed.
  • Repeat with 3 more additions of the egg mixture, until the paste is smooth and glossy.
  • Stir in 3/4 cup of the cheese.
  • Drop 1-inch mounds 1-1/2 inches apart on the prepared baking sheets, using a pastry bag or spoon.
  • Lightly beat the remaining egg white and brush it over each puff. Sprinkle with the remaining 2 tablespoons cheese.
  • Bake, one sheet at a time, until the puffs are firm and well browned, 20 to 25 minutes.
  • Serve warm.
  • Makes 4-1/2 dozen puffs
