In Trinidad, Cheese Puffs are a typical snack found at family gatherings and birthday parties. The delicate light pastry filled with a creamy Cheese Paste is simply addictive. The puffs are known as Choux Pastry or Pâte à choux in the pastry world and are made from 4 simple ingredients of flour, butter, water, and eggs. They get their puffed-up texture during the baking process when steam causes them to inflate. The cheese paste is added later as a filling to create a delicate sandwich of sorts. The next time you are invited to a potluck, whip up a batch of these lovely Trinidad Cheese Puffs and watch everyone stack to their heart's content.
