For this recipe you’ll need:
Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F.
In a heavy saucepan, combine the water, salt, sugar and butter, and bring to a boil.
Add the flour all at once, stirring constantly with a wooden spoon, until the flour is smoothly incorporated. Cook, stirring, for one additional minute.
Remove from the heat and transfer to a mixing bowl. Using an electric mixer, mix in the eggs one at a time until completely incorporated. Stir in the cheese and mustard.
While the dough is still warm, scoop or pipe onto parchment-lined sheet trays. Bake until very brown and crisp, 25 to 35 minutes. Serve warm.
