The recipe indicates a yield of 8 dozen. Perhaps in 1984 we ate more petitely, but by scooping out the paste in what I would describe as a heaping teaspoonful yielded me only 4 dozen puffs.
1/2 cup milk
1/2 cup water
1/2 cup butter
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon pepper
1/8 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1 cup sifted all-purpose flour
1 cup shredded cheese (I used a colby-jack blend)
Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Line 2 large cookie sheets with parchment paper.
I still think one would be hard pressed to get 8 dozen puffs out of this.
