Simply irresistible small cheese biscuits

One day I discovered this recipe of small cheese biscuits in an old baking book that introduced wonderful International recipes. The recipe of these savoury biscuits comes originally from Austria, but I do it a bit my way. As I have always been very curious of new culinary delights, I had to try this really easy to do recipe.

There is just one special thing you should know before you start baking this really tasty cheesy snack. The dough is a so-called choux pastry. The special thing about this is that the dough is prepared in a cooking pot.

I found out that these simply irresistible small cheese biscuits are a perfect snack as well as an appetizer, which you offer to your guests with an aperitif or with the so called kitchen wine. Do you know what we Germans mean when we speak about a glass of kitchen wine? That is a nice way to start a party when your guests arrive and your meal still needs a bit of time to be done. Then I offer the first glass of wine directly in my kitchen so that I can already spend some time with my guests speak while I keep an eye on my dish. It is a cozy situation and a relaxed way of waiting for the dish to be done. The only problem is that my guests usually can’t stop eating the small cheese biscuits while having the kitchen wine. That is why I call them simply irresistible small cheese biscuits.

Enjoy baking these delicious irresistible small cheese biscuits!
