French Friday: Gougeres
The folks that started the Tuesdays with Dorie baking group have started up another fun project to coincide with Dorie’s release of her newest cookbook, Around My French Table. The new group is called French Fridays with Dorie and of course, I joined up!
This week’s project was Gougeres, delicious little puffs of eggy, cheesy yumminess, and it was chosen by Dorie herself!
French cooking has always fascinated me because it’s always seemed a bit difficult and time consuming. These little biscuits were anything but. Though they needed some careful babysitting, there was really nothing to it, and you could easily whip up a batch to serve with breakfast or dinner.
I couldn’t find Gruyere cheese, unfortunately, so I used Swiss instead. This gave the biscuits a tangy bite, but I’m definitely going to keep an eye out for the Gruyere.
(Please forgive the bad lighting on the pictures – we have no natural lighting today (dark and cloudy), and I even managed to break one of my lamps.)
