Bring water, butter and cayenne to boil in medium saucepan on medium heat, stirring frequently with wooden spoon. Add flour all at once; stir until well blended. Cook and stir 2 min. or until mixture forms ball. Cool 5 min.
Add eggs, 1 at a time, stirring after each until well blended. Stir in remaining ingredients. Drop level tablespoonfuls of dough, about 2 inches apart, onto baking sheets sprayed with cooking spray.

Kraft Kitchen Tips!
Gougeres can be made ahead of time. Cool completely. Freeze in single layers in shallow pans. Once frozen, store in airtight container up to 1 month. When ready to serve, reheat in 375°F oven 8 to 10 min. or until gougeres are heated through. No need to thaw first.
For faster prep and consistency in size, use small tablespoon-size ice cream scoop to portion the dough for each gougere.
