Corn Cheese Puffs (Pâte à Choux)


¼ cup butter

1 cup milk

1/2 teaspoon salt

1 cup unbleached all-purpose flour

4 eggs

1 cup grated Swiss cheese

1/2 teaspoon chili powder

1 teaspoon minced fresh basil, or teaspoon dried

1/8 teaspoon cayenne pepper

2 cups corn kernels


Preheat oven to 375°F. In a small saucepan, combine the butter, milk, and salt. Bring to a boil and remove the pan from the heat. Add the flour and stir well. The dough will form a ball, rolling off the sides of the pan. Return the pan to the heat and cook for about l minute to dry out the dough, stirring constantly.  Remove the pan from the heat and stir in the eggs, one at a time. Add the cheese, chili powder, basil, cayenne, and corn; stir well.  Grease a baking sheet and drop teaspoons of dough onto it, leaving at least 2 inches between each puff. Bake for 25 minutes or until puffy and browned. Serve hot.
