Thyme Gougère

Thyme Gougère 1200 750 Round Pond Estate

These delicious French cheese puffs make phenomenal hors d’oeuvres!  This easy recipe comes to us from our Winery Chef, Jamie Prouten.  Chef says: “These are the perfect pairing with red wine and are something that I just love to make around the holidays.”

Ingredients

3 cups all-purpose flour
3 tsp kosher salt
18 Tbsp unsalted butter
12 eggs
3 bunches thyme, chopped
3 cups water
1 ½ cups shredded Parmesan cheese

Bring water, butter and salt to a boil in a saucepan. Add flour and mix until it pulls away from the side of the pan. Place the mixture in the bowl of a standing mixer, using the paddle attachment. Run mixer on medium speed and add eggs one at a time until the mixture is completely combined.

Transfer mixture into a pastry bag and pipe out golf ball-sized gougères onto a parchment-lined sheet tray.  Sprinkle with shredded Parmesan and bake for 45 minutes in a 300F oven on low fan. Best enjoyed when still warm!

Makes about 15 gougères
