Gruyère Gougères

Gruyère Gougères 1200 750 Round Pond Estate

Gougères are amazingly easy and elegant hors-d’oeuvre for any party, and pair with almost any wine flawlessly.  They also freeze exceptionally well, which makes it even easier come party time. Just reheat in a 375-degree oven until warmed through.

Ingredients
1 cup water
2 ounces unsalted butter
1-1/2 ounces Round Pond Italian Extra Virgin Olive Oil
2 teaspoons salt
1 pinch sugar
1-1/2 cups all-purpose flour4 eggs
1-1/2 cup grated Gruyère or Appenzeller cheese

Preheat oven to 400.  Simmer water, butter, olive oil, salt, and sugar until butter is melted.  Using a wooden spoon, incorporate all flour at once; continue cooking on medium heat until dough pulls away from the sides of the pot, approximately 3-5 minutes.

Immediately take off heat and place dough into a mixer attached with a paddle.  Paddle on low while adding cheese until melted; then add eggs one at a time, scraping bowl between each addition. Place mixture into a piping bag and pipe onto parchment-lined sheet trays.  Top with additional cheese if desired.  Bake at 400 for 25 minutes, until puffy and golden brown.  Serve hot.  Enjoy!
