  • Preheat oven to 425°F. Combine flour and baking powder; set aside. Bring water and butter to boil in heavy saucepan on medium-high heat; continue boiling until butter is completely melted, stirring occasionally. Remove from heat.
  • Add flour mixture gradually, stirring until mixture is well blended and dough pulls away from side of pan. Place dough in large bowl of electric mixer fitted with paddle attachment. Add eggs; beat on medium-high speed until dough is smooth and glossy. Stir in cheese. Drop dough by tablespoonfuls onto greased baking sheet.
  • Bake 15 min. Reduce oven temperature to 350°F. Bake an additional 25 min. or until puffs are golden brown and sound hollow when lightly tapped. Serve warm.

Cooking Know-How

For the perfect baked bunuelo (cheese puff), it is necessary to start the baking process at a high temperature to get the dough to rise nicely and brown evenly. The oven temperature is then lowered to prevent the puffs from becoming too brown while the puffs continue to bake until the centers are dry.

Substitute

Prepare as directed, using KRAFT Shredded Cheddar Cheese.
