Parmesan Puffs

1 cup whole milk
1/2 cup unsalted butter (1 cube)
1 teaspoon salt
1 cup all-purpose flour
5 eggs, divided
1-1/2 cups freshly-grated Parmesan cheese, divided

Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Grease 1 cookie sheet.

In a saucepan over high heat, combine milk, butter and salt, and bring to a boil. Remove pan from heat, add flour and whisk vigorously for a few minutes. Return pan to medium heat and stir constantly for approximately 5 minutes or until batter has thickened and begins to pull away from sides of pan.

Remove pan from heat again and whisk in 4 of the eggs, one at a time, incorporating each egg before adding the next. Stir in 1 cup of Parmesan cheese.

Drop the batter by teaspoonfuls onto a prepared baking sheet, spacing them at least 1 inch apart.

In a small bowl, beat remaining egg. Brush tops of puffs with beaten egg and sprinkle with remaining Parmesan cheese. Reduce heat to 350 degrees and bake 15 to 20 minutes or until puffy and well-browned.

Yield: 20 puffs
