Gougeres - puff pastry with cheese

This recipe is from a 5 year old issue of a Danish magazine Bo Bedre. I made them some weeks ago, and they were quite nice as a snack with a glass of wine. Tonight I will check if they are just as good when out of the freezer.

(Makes 22 units approx.)
1 dl water
40 g butter
60 g wheat flour
2 small eggs (whipped)
40-50 g of blue cheese
black pepper

Bring the water to boil with butter. Pour the flour in while stirring vigorously.

When the dough easily slips the pot, transfer it to a bowl and cool for some minutes. Stir in the eggs little by little and then the crumpled cheese. Season with pepper.

With two teaspoons put the small rolls on the baking sheet and put them in a 200 degrees C warm oven for about 18 min until light golden brown.

Do not open the oven to check on them or they will collapse.
