A couple of weeks ago, I was on a French baking kick. First I tried several different kinds of Macarons, then I tried Gougères. These were so good, and so simple. They are very easy to work with, and you can flavor them with pretty much any cheese and any herbs. Of course, I went with an Indian twist, and added coriander seeds and red chili flakes. They were so good, that the people of the house ate around 5 in a row, without even realizing it. I highly suggest you try these out!
- 1 cup apf, unbleached
- 1 cup water
- 3-4 tbsp butter
- 1 tsp salt
- 4 cold eggs
- 1 cup grated cheese, any kind will do, so use your favorite
- 1/4 tsp freshly ground pepper
- 1/2 tsp red chili flakes
- 1 tsp crushed coriander seeds
- 1 tsp chopped dill
Preheat the oven to 400*. This will make about 2 dozen, so line two baking sheets with parchment paper.
You can round them out with your finger, or leave them as is. I rounded them out so they would look pretty.
