Mozzarella Cheese Puffs (Piumini di Mozzarella al Forno)

READY IN: 30mins
Recipe by Dee514

These are a tasty, quick, easy to prepare appetizer. They have the added advantage of being able to prepare them several days in advance and freezing until needed.

They quickly disappeared at my last party! I added another oz of cheese, aswell as chili powder & cayenne instead of paprika. They turned out great! Next time, I may even throw in some finely chopped jalapeno.
