FFWD: Gougeres

Dorie Greenspan just released a new cookbook: Around My French Table and soon thereafter a new club was formed with the goal to to cook and bake from this book.

I have to admit I've heard of Dorie before but I am not familiar with her recipes or her cookbooks. This fabulous gougeres is the 1st recipe I made of her and I can tell you that I am in love with Dorie already!

Not only is these little puffy goodness are fabulous in taste (soft, moist, and so aromatic of gruyere), but they are so easy. I made 1/2 recipes and it took 20 minutes to prepare.

I was a little surprised that they turned out a bit yellowish, I got organic eggs and I think they are more yellow than regular eggs. I am also finding that they taste better at room temperature than straight out of the oven. It is more cheesy at room temp :).

  1. i loved them too! i just baked a few that i had frozen in my toaster oven and they came out great as well. i'm sticking my ffwd posts on my other blog.

  2. I too am always surprised by the bright yellow color when I use fresh eggs. It is a sad comment on the state of our food supply that we are not used to that nice yellow color.

  3. I liked them fresh out of the oven and at room temperature. They are great, aren't they? I really like the yellow color of yours.

  4. Ohhh, mine eggs were bright yellow as well! I guess the WB on my camera worked because when I took the picture they balance out and did not show as yellowish.. who knew?

    I think this were a HIT EVERYWHERE!

    Glad that you decided to join FFwD.. we are going to have fun.

  5. Just beautiful! I wish I thought to freeze mine!

  6. Gorgeous gougeres! Love the bright egg yolk yellow, too!
