      A good recipe they turned out beautifully, but 1/4 tsp. nutmeg is too much. Next time I'll use 1/8. Of course I used Swiss cheese, as Gruyere is way beyond my budget (30.00 a pound here), so that may have made the difference. I made the butter, water, salt, pepper, nutmeg and flour on the stove, then transferred the mixture to my stand mixer to finish it off. Worked beautifully!

      I'm a beginner cook and I was very afraid at first. But they turned out very tasty. Even my mom, my first critic liked them a lot. Try them, you won't regret! Thanks for posting!
