  • Summary

    Ingredients (makes about 40) 1 cup water 4 ounce salted butter 1 1/4 cups plain flour 2 cups grated Emmenthal or Gruyère cheese 4 eggs 1 egg yolk for glazing A dash of salt garlic and pepper Pre-heat the oven 350

    Ingredients

    • In a saucepan, bring the water and butter to a boil. Add the flour, stirring very fast and take immediately off the heat. By now the batter will be roughly in the form of a soft ball. Add the eggs, one by one and stir. It’s important to add the eggs slowly – don’t worry if it looks too thick, just continue to stir as it will eventually become a smooth batter. Finally add the cheese, salt & pepper and stir to a good dewy batter.
    • Prepare a baking tray line with parchment paper. You have two choices for preparing the gougères: either put the dough in a pastry bag with a standard tip and pipe walnut sized mounds, or spoon and shape with the help of two teaspoons and evenly shaped ball (again like the size of a walnut). Glaze with the egg yolk for a golden baked finish. Sprinkle the puffs lightly with grated cheese.
    • Leave an adequate space between each gougères and bake for 25 minutes approx or until puffy and golden. Serve immediately.
    • ps: You can prepare these in advance and either refrigerate or freeze them. Just take them out again before serving and heat in a high-heat oven for 5-7 minutes.
