"As I ate the oysters with their strong taste of the sea and their faint metallic taste that the cold white wine washed away, leaving only the sea taste and the succulent texture, and as I drank their cold liquid from each shell and washed it down with the crisp taste of the wine, I lost the empty feeling and began to be happy, and to make plans."--Ernest Hemingway

cup milk
cup water
stick unsalted butter
tsp salt
scant tsp cayenne
cup flour
2 eggs
1 cup grated extra-sharp Cheddar

1. In a small heavy saucepan, combine the milk, water, butter, salt, and cayenne and bring to a boil over high heat.
2. Reduce to moderate heat, add flour all at once and beat with a wooden spoon until it leaves the side of the pan. Beat the mixture for one minute.
3. Transfer to a bowl (I use my Kitchen Aid mixer at this point), beat in eggs one at a time, beating well after each addition, and then stir in Cheddar.
4. Using a medium ice-cream scooper, place ~18 mounds on two parchment lined baking sheets and bake in upper third of 400 oven for about 17 minutes or until golden brown.

May be made one day in advance and kept in an airtight container. Reheat for 5 minutes in a 400 oven.
