Three Cheese Garlic Puffs with Homemade Dough, a great recipe to add to your appetizer platter.
A buttermilk rich crust, filled with cream cheese, baked and then brushed with a garlic herb butter and rolled in parmesan, watch these delicious little bites disappear off the plate in record time.
Many recipes use refrigerated biscuit or premade dough when making cheese bombs and because this type of dough is not available in some countries, this makes a great recipe option.
The dough does not have yeast, and there is no kneading....in fact it is really quick and easy and takes just 5 minutes to make the dough. It is important not to overhandle the dough, just mix and gather the dough together.
Overmixing will result in a tough and chewy dough and that is not a good idea at all.
The dough is then refrigerated for about 10 minutes, rolled out into a 50 x 75inch ( 20 x 30cm )rectangular shape and then cut out into 20 little squares.
Each square is spread with a bit of cream cheese and a piece of cheddar or mozzarella is placed in the square, folded and rolled into a ball.
It is then baked, removed from the oven and brushed with garlic butter and rolled in finely grated parmesan. Super easy and delicious.
These are actually best served warm.
Here in my home, these do not even get the chance to reach the warm stage, they are snatched off the baking tray after it has been brushed with garlic butter and parmesan and is still piping hot when eaten.
I don't blame the boys, because our home smells so good when these are baking. It is that irresistible bread/ cheese baking aroma. So yummy.
