Cheese Puffs

User Rating 5 Star Rating (1 Review)


I like to bake this recipe for Cheese Puffs on insulated cookie sheets so they don't over brown or burn on the bottom. This special recipe is great for an appetizer party or as a dipper for cheese fondue. Cheez Whiz is a cold pack processed cheese food that is found in jars in the supermarket.

Prep Time: 20 minutes

Cook Time: 15 minutes

Total Time: 35 minutes

Yield: 24 servings


  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1/4 cup butter
  • 1/8 tsp. salt
  • 1/2 cup plus 1 tablespoon flour
  • 2 eggs
  • 3 oz. pkg. cream cheese, softened
  • 1/3 cup Cheese Whiz


Preheat oven to 400 degrees. In a heavy saucepan, combine water, butter and salt, and bring to a rolling boil. Add flour all at once, stirring constantly until mixture forms a ball and cleans the sides of the pan. (You are making a cream puff dough.) Remove from heat. Beat in eggs, one at a time, beating vigorously after each till mixture is smooth and glossy. Stir in softened cream cheese and Cheez Whiz until blended.

Drop by teaspoons onto well greased or parchment paper lined cookie sheets. Bake at 400 degrees for 15-20 minutes until puffed and golden brown. Serve immediately.

Cheesy and crisp, Guest Mimi

These puffs are the perfect appetizer. I make a bunch and freeze them, then just reheat them in the oven until they're hot and crisp. The perfect mouthful of crunch and cheese!
