Mini Cream Puffs Recipe: A Great Appetizer for the Holidays

This mini cream puffs recipe I’m sharing with you today was (again) from my grandmother’s collection of very old recipes. Sources varied from pamphlets to books of all kinds, to recipes clipped from newspapers.  She made these at Christmas time as appetizers and everyone just loved them!

I’ve adapted the mini cream puffs recipe to “modernize” it, as I watched her create these tasty treats many times.

Below the recipe I’ll add a scanned copy of the original mini cream puffs recipe. 🙂

Mini Cream Puffs Recipe

Shredded cheese

1/2 cup butter
1/4 cup water

  1. Put water and butter in a small saucepan over high heat. When it boils, quickly stir in flour.
  2. Remove from the heat, add grated cheese and unbeaten eggs, one at a time.
  3. Beat thoroughly and drop by teaspoonfuls into small (mini) muffin cup pans.
  4. Bake at moderate heat (350 degrees) for approximately 20 minutes.
  5. Fill puffs with whipped cream that has been seasoned with salt, paprika and grated cheese.
  6. Serve with tea or salad.
