Expert Tips

You can prepare these puffs ahead. Cool puffs, wrap tightly and freeze. When ready to serve, place in muffin cups and heat in a 350ºF oven for 8 to 10 minutes or until hot.

Add 1 tablespoon chopped fresh basil, oregano or parsley (or 1 teaspoon dried) to the flour to create Herbed Parmesan Puffs with Marinara.
