Cream Puffs with Goat and Cream Cheese


1/2 cup water
1/2 cup milk
1/2 cup (half stick) butter
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon nutmeg
1 1/3 cup flour
4 eggs, plus one for brushing


4 ounces cream cheese
4 ounces soft goat cheese
2 tablespoons milk
1 teaspoon parsley
1 teaspoon dill
Pinch of ground black pepper

Preheat the oven to 375 degrees. Grease two baking sheets.

For the pastry, in a medium saucepan, melt the butter in the water and milk. Add the salt and ground nutmeg. Removing from heat, add the flour all at once and stir rapidly with a wooden spoon. Once combined, allow to cool for about five minutes.

Add 4 eggs, one at a time, and combine well. Then add mixture into pipping bag and pipe small mounds onto the baking sheet (they do not spread easily). Lightly brush with a beaten egg. Bake for about 20 minutes until lightly golden.

Meanwhile, to make the filling, combine the cheeses and milk and beat until smooth. Add the spices.

When the pastries are baked and cooled, slice in half and spread the filling on the bottom half. Replace the tops to make a sandwich. Enjoy!
