Gougeres are French cheese puffs made with choux pastry. I made gougeres for the first time a few months ago and fell in love with these savory pastry puffs. I decided to make some this past weekend.
I wanted to use gruyere cheese, but I forgot to buy some. I had some monterey jack so I used that instead. I think the monterey jack cheese was a little too mild in taste so I didn’t love these puffs as much as the previous ones I made. I was also in rush so my piping skills were off.
These puffs are pretty easy to make and they can be an impressive appetizer. The recipe can be found here.
