At a glance
1 cup water
8 tbsp cold butter
1 cup four
4 eggs
1 cup Roquefort cheese
½ tsp salt
¼ tsp black pepper
¼ tsp garlic powder
1 beaten egg (to brush on puffs)


Preheat oven to 375 degrees and cover two baking trays with parchment paper so puffs won't stick.

In large saucepan, bring water, salt, and butter to a boil.

Once butter is melted add the flower and stir for 20-30 seconds until the dough forms and stops sticking the pan. Reduce heat and set aside for 5 minutes until cool.

Beat in eggs one at a time, along with Roquefort cheese, garlic powder, and black pepper. Mix thoroughly.

Place large teaspoonfuls of mix onto baking sheets about 1 inch apart.

Brush tops of puffs with egg wash (helps create golden-brown crust)

Bake for 20-25 minutes; make sure to rotate trays halfway through cooking process.
