Fluffy Herbed Appetizer Puffs

Treat your guests to these fluffy cheese puffs that are made using Gold Medal® all-purpose flour - ready in 50 minutes. A versatile addition to your appetizer plate!

Ingredients

3/4
cup water
1/4
cup butter or margarine, cut up
1/2
teaspoon salt
3/4
cup Gold Medal™ all-purpose flour
3
eggs
1/4
cup grated Parmesan cheese
2
tablespoons finely chopped fresh chives
2
tablespoons finely chopped fresh basil leaves

Directions

  • 1 Heat oven to 425°F. Line 2 cookie sheets with cooking parchment paper. In 2-quart saucepan, heat water, butter and salt to rolling boil over medium heat. When butter is melted, remove from heat; stir in flour all at once until blended.
  • 2 Return to medium heat; cook 1 to 1 1/2 minutes, stirring constantly, until dough forms a ball and leaves a slight film on side of pan.
  • 3 Remove from heat; stir in eggs, one at a time, stirring until thoroughly mixed. Stir in Parmesan cheese, chives and basil. On cookie sheets, drop by heaping teaspoonfuls 2 inches apart into 1 1/4-inch mounds, making 30 mounds.
  • 4 Bake about 20 minutes or until golden brown and set. Remove from oven; with tip of sharp knife, make small slit in side of each puff to allow steam to escape. Bake 5 to 8 minutes longer or until dry and firm.

Step By Step  

Chinese New Year Party: Year of the Dragon!

As prepared by Sugar and Charm,

Ring in the Year of the Dragon with your own Chinese New Year party.


Chinese New Year is one of the most important, long-running and festive holidays in China. The Chinese celebrate with two weeks of events and outrageous celebrations — sounds fun!

In my home, we like to celebrate holidays like Cinco De Mayo and Chinese New Year by cooking some traditional foods specific to the culture. It’s a great way to teach children about different cultures and holidays celebrated around the world and to have fun with friends!

This year the festivities begin on January 23rd, so start planning your party for what the Chinese call the “Spring Festival.” To celebrate, why not throw a Chinese New Year party and invite some friends over to partake in the celebration? You can choose one day within the two weeks to host an appetizer and cocktail event, and use some of these dragon-themed decorations to embellish your shindig!



  1. Rice paper votive

  2. Paper paddle fan

  3. Cotton dragon

  4. Gold piñata from Confetti System

  5. Gold and red feather mask

  6. Gold star sparklers from Tops Malibu

  7. Gold cocktail napkins

  8. Lotus candle holder

  9. Festive, gold drinking glasses

  10. Red serving plates


Appetizers


For appetizers, try some of these recipes: delicious Magic Dragon Puffs, a large pot of Shiitake Mushroom Soup (serve with small soup bowls on the side) and some Steamed Vegetable Dumplings.

Cocktails


It’s not a party without a signature cocktail! Sticking to the dragon theme, serve these yummy Orange Dragonfruit Cocktails. You can also serve Champagne with an ounce of SKYY’s new Dragonfruit Vodka.

Dessert


For a special treat after dinner, serve Slow Cooker Caramel Rice Pudding and Elegant Almond Bars!

Put on some traditional Chinese music (or current!), decorate and set-up a yummy appetizer table. You’ll have a soiree that is sure to be remembered and bring good fortune to the New Year!

Tips  

Dropping these cheesy puffs into a steaming pot of boiling water before baking gives them a light, airy texture.

These airy little puffs can be cut in half and filled with 1 tablespoon of your favorite salad such as egg salad, tuna salad, ham salad or seafood salad.

Puffs can be baked in advance and stored in airtight containers. Reheat on ungreased cookie sheets at 350°F 5 to 10 minutes.
