Cindy Pawlcyn’s Gruyère Gougères

Course: Appetizer
Servings: 8 makes about 60

Ingredients

  • 4-5 large eggs
  • 1 pinch salt plus 1/4 tsp for gougères
  • 3/4 cup water
  • 1/3 cup butter
  • 3/4 cup flour
  • 3/4 cup Gruyère cheese finely grated

Instructions

  • Preheat the oven to 375°–400° degrees.
  • To make an egg wash, beat 1 egg with a pinch of salt and set aside.
  • For the gougères, combine the water, butter, and ¼ teaspoon salt in a saucepan and bring to a boil. Reduce the heat, add the flour, and whisk until the batter comes away from the sides of the pan. Cook for 1–2 minutes longer.
  • Transfer to a mixing bowl and beat in three of the eggs, one at a time, beating until smooth after each addition. Add the last egg only if the batter seems too thick. The dough should be like thick cookie dough. Stir in the Gruyère, saving a little to sprinkle on the top before baking.
  • To finish the gougères, line a baking sheet with parchment paper and pipe or spoon about a teaspoon of batter for each gougère onto it. Brush with egg wash and sprinkle the tops with the remaining cheese. Bake until golden and puffed, about 12–16 minutes. Serve immediately.
