This time of year is meant for baking. Not only that the holidays are fast approaching, but the falling temperature outside means more time in the kitchen as we spend less time outdoor. Nothing warms up quite like the warmth from baking something in the oven. Plus, the smell and aroma of baked goods are always welcoming in the crisp cool air during fall/winter.
I have wanted to try making French cheese puffs, or gougères for a while. I have bookmarked so many Gougères recipes I have lost count of them. I love all sorts of cheese puffs or breads, be it Brazilian cheese puffs pão de queijo, cheese breadsticks, or French choux pastry as in cream puff. Gougères is such a delightful—and addictive—little package packed with wonderful aroma and delicate flavors. I couldn’t stop eating these fresh-off-the-oven cheese puffs.
Next week is Thanksgiving holiday and instead of your regular parker house rolls, perhaps you can try this French cheese puffs or Gougères recipe. Everyone could always use some extra cheese, especially the ones mixed with dough and baked to golden perfection. What are you making for Thanksgiving?
