“While cleaning out my computer room I came across an old cookbook of printed recipes from a discontinued web site called SOAR. I’ve checked and found that a lot of these recipes don’t exist here and they are too good to just let them fade into memory. I’d like to share these with the rest of the cooks on the site and maybe we can pass these on to the next generation of cooks. Enjoy !”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Bring water, butter, salt and pepper to a boil in a saucepan. Add flour quickly, all at once, beating with a wooden spoon until mixture forms a ball that leaves the sides of the pan.
  2. Remove from heat and add the eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition. ( mixture will separate as each egg is added to it ).
  3. Set aside 2 tablespoons diced Cheddar cheese; stir remaining cheese into the flour mixture.
  4. Drop dough, by rounded teaspoonfuls ( about 11 ) onto a greased baking sheet to form an 8" ring, leaving a 2 1/2 to 3 inch diameter hole in center.
  5. Sprinkle reserved cheese over the top.
  6. Bake at 425 F for 50 to 55 minutes or until puffy and golden brown.
  7. Serve hot.
