Basil Parmesan Puffs

So delicious!!! (Apropriate that I found them in Simple and Delicious! :) These little guys would make a great appetizer or side dish! I whipped them up in no time and they really dressed up our typical spaghetti dinner! It was hard not to take more then my share! :)
Basil Parmesan Puffs
3/4 cup water
6 T butter, cubed
3/4 tsp salt
3/4 cup all-purpose flour
4 eggs
1 cup minced fresh basil
1 cup grated Parmesan cheese

In a large saucepan, bring the water, butter, and salt to a boil. Add flour all at once and stir until a smooth ball forms. Remove from the heat; let stand for 5 minutes. Add eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition. Continue beating until mixture is smooth and shiny. Stir in basil and cheese.

Drop by rounded tablespoonfuls 1 inch apart onto greased baking sheets. Bake at 400 for 18-20 minutes or until golden brown. Remove to wire racks. Serve warm. Yield: about 2 dozen
