A question about a recipe: Paprika-Scented Manchego Chorizo Puffs

Ddb48f80 2549 4d18 a445 dca17be3bdd8  zeppole

I have a question about the recipe "Paprika-Scented Manchego Chorizo Puffs" from Half-Buzzed Hostess. Do you have a recommendation of a younger manchego or one aged longer? I know a longer aged cheese is more flavorful, but it might not have enough moisture. What works best?

I think you will have a much easier time working with a younger Manchego or any of the mixed milk varieties (they have brand names like Campo de Montalban or Queso Iberico), anything older with a high proportion of cheese to flour will probably separate to some degree and leave more grease when baked.
