Cheese Puffs

These puffs are light (as in opposite of heavy, not as in diet food obviously) and cheesey. I love the flavor of garlic powder on top.
Cheese Puffs
2 c. water
½ c. butter
1 t. salt
½ t. pepper
2 c. flour
6 lg. eggs
2 c. Monterey-Jack cheese, shredded
½ c. cheddar cheese, shredded
1 t. baking powder
Garlic powder

Preheat oven 400ยบ. Combine water and butter in a saucepan; add and pepper. Bring to a rapid boil. Add flour all at once, beating vigorously with a wooden spoon until mixture forms a ball and comes away from sides of pan. Remove from heat; cool 5 minutes. Add eggs one at a time, beating vigorously by hand or in a food processor 20 seconds until smooth. Blend in Monterey-Jack cheese, baking powder, garlic powder and paprika to taste. Drop 2-inch balls of dough onto lightly greased cookie sheets. Bake for 20 minutes or until puffed and lightly browned. Just before serving brush tops with a little butter and sprinkle with cheddar cheese, garlic powder and paprika. Return to oven. Heat about five minutes or until cheese is melted.
