This is the kind of recipe everyone should have up her sleeve. Rich egg flavor meets light, airy texture for an impressive-but-easy appetizer that is adaptable to many different cheeses and herbs. The simple dough used to create these pastries — called pâte à choux — takes less than 15 minutes to make, and can be refrigerated and used a little at a time for up to a week. It is the basis of a number of other French pastries, including cheese puffs, cream puffs and éclairs. Makes about 20 cheese puffs.
