Ring in the New Year with this super easy, yet classy Ensymada Cheese Puff. I’ve taken the sweet cheesy bread roll and turned it into a cheese puff. It’s also easier and faster to make!
Superstitions abound when we celebrate the New Year. We have to do the following in no particular order:
So I have created for you these Ensymada Cheese Puffs! They are nice and round and puffy. The puff is laced with cheese and then smothered in some sweet cheesy butter cream. Oh and topped with more cheese.
So let’s make it! This is the equipment that you need:
For the dough these are the ingredients:
I cheated with the frosting and used Simple Mills Vanilla Frosting and just mixed some cheese in.
Last year I made puffs as well, but with a different flavour. In that post I did take photos of how to make the dough step by step. Go on over to get a refresh.
Every step is the same, except for the topping. My only modification this time is if you don’t want to buy piping bags and tip you can transfer the dough to a 1 gallon zip lock bag.
To do that push the dough to one corner that is fully sealed and then wring the top of the bag so that it pushes the dough when you apply pressure. Cut the corner where the opening is about 1cm. Now you have a makeshift, but very workable piping bag!
Pipe the dough into one inch rounds. Remembering that these do puff up quite a bit when baked. So give each pipe of dough at least 2 inches of room around all sides.
If you have any peaks on your piped mounds wet your finger with water and just lightly press down.
Once you have it all piped out, add more cheese!
After baking at 400 degrees F for 20 minutes, the puffs will look like this:
Leave them all to cool fully before putting the cream on or else it was just all melt away. As I said, I used a short cut and just mixed some pre-made (healthy-ish) frosting and mixed in some cheese. It works like a charm!
After spreading on the cheesy cream top with more cheese!
Now this is when the magic happens and you sprinkle as a finishing touch some sugar.
What I like to do is have some fully made up, but then also have some plain cheese ones out with the cream, extra cheese and sugar on the side. You can make it DIY as some want more cheese and less sugar or more sugar and less cheese.
I also like it with a nice crisp champagne.
Enjoy the New Year Festivities and I can’t wait to see you back in a few days with even more healthy Filipino inspired recipes!
