Baked Cheese Balls
These cheese balls are very popular in France. This is the combination of cheese and dough. Yummy snack reminds of éclairs a bit. They taste great with wine.
It`s recommended to eat these balls hot and supplement them with different sauces. Don`t worry if you do something wrong and these cheese balls aren`t that great. The taste won`t be spoiled. Still I recommend you to work in a quick pace. Prepare all the ingredients beforehand: grate cheese and make the dough not to have problems while cooking.
