The little pastries fill the kitchen with a fantastic aroma and are perfect for a cozy night spent indoors.

Gougere – French Pastries

Ingredients

  • 1 cup water
  • 8 tablespoons butter, cut into ½-inch pieces
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 4 large eggs
  • 1 ½ cups Gruyere cheese, shredded
  • 3 tablespoons Parmesan cheese, grated
  • 1/8 teaspoon freshly grated nutmeg
  • ¼ teaspoon black pepper

Directions

Preheat oven to 375⁰ F. and line 2 baking sheets with parchment paper.

In a large saucepan, bring water, butter, and salt to a rapid, rolling boil. Make sure all the butter is melted, and then add flour. Stir the mixture for 20-30 seconds, until a sticky dough ball forms and begins pulling away from the sides of the pan. Reduce heat to low-medium heat and cook, stirring, for 90 seconds. Remove from heat and set aside for 5 minutes.

Beat in eggs, one at a time, along with cheeses and seasonings. Place heaping teaspoonful’s onto prepared baking sheets 1 inch apart. Bake, rotating sheets halfway through, for 25-30 minutes. The Gougeres are done when they are a deep golden brown and puffed. Serve immediately.
