  • Preheat oven to 375°F (190°C). In a saucepan, add water, butter and cheese. Bring to a boil. Add flour and baking powder. Pour in the flour mixture all at once and stir briskly with a wooden spoon until the dough doesn’t stick to the sides of the pan. Remove from heat. Add eggs while stirring briskly. Spoon small balls of dough onto a baking sheet. Bake about 15 minutes, until the dough is golden. Leave the dough balls to dry in the oven 15 minutes longer. Set aside.
  • In a saucepan, melt butter and cook leeks on low for 8 to 10 minutes until they are tender. Preheat oven to 400°F (200°C). Stuff the small pastry blossoms with leeks. Add cheese pieces on each blossom. Return them to the oven to melt the cheese. Serve when the blossoms are hot.
