  • 1 cup water 1 cup water
  • ¼ cup unsalted butter ¼ cup unsalted butter, cut into pieces
  • ½ teaspoon salt ½ teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 4 eggs 4 large eggs
  • 1 cup white cheddar cheese 1 cup white extra sharp cheddar cheese shredded
  • 1 cup medium cheddar cheese 1 cup medium cheddar cheese shredded
  • cup scallions ⅓ cup scallions, white and green part minced


  1. Line baking sheets with parchment paper. Preheat oven to 375° F.

    Bring 1 cup of water, butter, and ½ teaspoon salt to boiling in a heavy medium saucepan. Remove from heat and mix in the flour. Stir over medium heat until the mixture starts to become thick and begins to separate from the pan, about 3 minutes.

  2. Transfer to a stand mixer fitted with a paddle. Add the eggs to the mixture, one at a time, mixing vigorously to form a sticky dough. Stir in cheese and scallions until well incorporated in the dough.

  3. Using 2 teaspoons form dough into 1 ½ inch ovals, drop into baking sheet 1-inch evenly spaced apart. Place the baking sheet in the middle of the oven. Bake until golden, about 20 minutes. Serve immediately.
