Cheese Puffs

I love making cream puffs but decided for New Year's Eve that I wanted to make cheese puffs. They are so easy and turned out great!
Here'e the recipe:
1 stick butter
1 cup water
1 cup flour
4 eggs
1/4 teaspoon salt
Cheese (I used Swiss, Jack, and Brie - about 3/4 cup total)

In a saucepan, combine butter and water until boiling. Add flour and stir until dough pulls away from sides and forms a ball. Remove from heat and add eggs, one at a time, stirring completely before each new addition. Add cheese and stir until combined. Using either a scoop or piping bag, place portions of cheese puff dough on a lined baking sheet. Bake at 425 for 15-20 minutes. Reduce heat to 350 for about 10-15 minutes or until puffs are done. The centers may seem a little doughy because of the cheese but if it has been baked enough, it will dry out as it cools.
Note - you can use any combination of cheeses. You may want to use more or less, depending on your desired taste. I also served mine with blackberry jam. It paired exceptionally well with the flavor of the brie.
