4 eggs
300 ml (1 1/4 cups)
old white cheddar, finely shredded
425 ml (1 3/4 cups) old yellow cheddar, finely shredded
7 ml (1 1/2 tsp.) smoked paprika


  1. Preheat the oven to 180°C (350°F).
  2. In a saucepan, bring the water, butter and salt to a boil over medium-high heat.
  3. As soon as it starts boiling, remove from the heat.
  4. Add the flour at once.
  5. With a wooden spatula, beat the mix rigorously until it turns into a ball.
  6. Cook over low heat, stirring continuously for 1 to 2 minutes to dry the dough. (It must detach from the sides of the saucepan).

  8. Add the eggs one at a time, beating the first egg until well incorporated before adding the second one.
  9. Add the white cheddar, stirring vigorously add 300 ml (1 1/4 cups) of yellow cheddar (set the rest aside) and beat well.
  10. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  11. Using a pastry bag with a plain tip, make small balls of dough on the baking sheet.
  12. Leave a little space between each ball as they puff up during the baking.
  13. Bake in the oven for 40 minutes.
  14. Turn off the heat and leave the door half-open. Let rest for 5 minutes.
  15. Remove the chouquettes and sprinkle with the rest of the yellow cheddar.
