Parmesan-Gruyère Gougères

Here’s a fun recipe idea for New Year’s Eve. These savory, cheesy little bites are irresistible. This was my first time making gougeres, and despite being a French pastry, were incredibly simple.

Parmesan-Gruyère Gougères

Ingredients:

1 cup water
1/4 cup butter
1 cup flour
3 large eggs
1/2 cup shredded Parmasan Cheese
1/2 cup shredded Gruyère Cheese
1 teaspoon freshly cracked black pepper

Directions:

1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees. Add water, butter and black pepper to a small saucepan. Bring to a boil over medium heat. Add flour all at once, and using a wooden spoon, continue to stir over medium heat until mixture comes into a ball, about 2 minutes. Let cool at least 5 minutes.

2. Add eggs, one at a time, stirring well to incorporate each egg into the dough before adding the next. Add both cheeses and mix well. Use a pastry bag and drop dough onto parchment paper on cookie sheet the size of grape tomatoes. If using a spoon, only use one level tablespoon of dough per gougères.

3. Bake at 425 degrees for 10 minutes, then turn oven to 375 degrees and bake for 20 more minutes, or until golden brown.
