    Kittencalskitchen's Note:

    These melt-in-your-mouth puffs will become a favorite, so light and cheesy, I aways make lots of these, but no matter how many I make, it's just never enough, they go so fast. (note: plan ahead, these puffs need to chill overnight)

      Delicious ! I make a double batch and freeze some - they can be baked from frozen and come out great. Terrific little bites - thanks !

      I made these as an appetizer on the breads and pickles table for Thanksgiving. The first time I misread the recipe and used a whole package of cream cheese, not 3 ounces (nearly a third of the packeges around here) stated. The second time I used the right measurements and added a little garlic paste. I used a loaf of "Texas Toast", crusts removed and slices quartered. They went over great! Everyone wanted to know how to make them. Next time, I'll add more garlic paste or some barbecue spices. Maybe some Red Devil.

      When I first made this recipe, I wasn't too sure about the final result once I had dipped them and let them rest over night... I was wrong - these were delicious!!! Great finger food, the kids especially LOVED these - but the adults gobbled them up too! I had lots of requests for this recipe.... Another winner Kitten!
