  2. Combine water, butter, and salt in a heavy saucepan and bring to a full boil, stirring until butter is melted. Reduce heat to medium, add flour, and cook, stirring, until mixture pulls away from sides of pan, about 30 sec. Continue to cook and stir for about 1 1/2 min.

  3. Remove from heat and let cool slightly, about 3 min. Add eggs, one at a time, beating after each addition. Mixture should be glossy and just stiff enough to fall softly from a spoon. Stir in cheeses and pepper. Spoon tablespoons of batter onto sheets. Bake until puffed and golden and crisp, about 30-35 minutes. Serve warm.
