    I needed something quick to make for unexpected guests and these fit the bill!! I am on a restricted diet and had to depend on the raving of the others...but i will admit to taking a tiny taste!! I love making cream puffs and this is a basic cream puff dough made different and special with the potatos and cheese!!! Thank you so much for this recipe!!
