Cheese Puffs

"These melt-in-your-mouth puffs will become a favorite, so light and cheesy, I aways make lots of these, but no matter how many I make, it's just never enough, they go so fast. (note: plan ahead, these puffs need to chill overnight)"

    Delicious ! I make a double batch and freeze some - they can be baked from frozen and come out great. Terrific little bites - thanks !

    I made these as an appetizer on the breads and pickles table for Thanksgiving. The first time I misread the recipe and used a whole package of cream cheese, not 3 ounces (nearly a third of the packeges around here) stated. The second time I used the right measurements and added a little garlic paste. I used a loaf of "Texas Toast", crusts removed and slices quartered. They went over great! Everyone wanted to know how to make them. Next time, I'll add more garlic paste or some barbecue spices. Maybe some Red Devil.

    When I first made this recipe, I wasn't too sure about the final result once I had dipped them and let them rest over night... I was wrong - these were delicious!!! Great finger food, the kids especially LOVED these - but the adults gobbled them up too! I had lots of requests for this recipe.... Another winner Kitten!

    Was not too hopeful when I looked at them before they had rested overnight and been cooked but when we tasted them - success! Very popular with everyone and the first of many plates of nibbles to be finished. I used a strong cheddar cheese so they were pleasantly cheesy.

    I made these to bring to my mom's house for Christmas Eve and they were AWESOME!!!! After tasting the "dipping mixture" I knew right them and there that I had better make another batch..(LOL). Talk about EZ, this takes the cake....(The only thing is that I could not find the time to go to the bakery to get unsliced bread, so the supermarket sells ready made dough to make your ouwn bread) Even having to do this I went ahead amd made the 2nd (Which I doubled) batch !!!!GREAT RECEPIE>>>>THANKS
