Burgundian Cheese Pastry Recipe

Burgundian Cheese Pastry (gougère bourguignonne) Recipes

Ingredients :

choux pastry made with 2 eggs

black pepper

grated nutmeg

2 oz Gruyere or Cheddar cheese

egg for glazing

Method :

Make the choux pastry and add the pepper and grated nutmeg. Grate half the cheese and beat into the pastry. Using an icing bag, pipe a circle of balls just touching to form a crown on a greased oven sheet. Cut the remaining cheese into 1/4-inch cubes and dot the pastry ring with these. Glaze with beaten egg, and bake in hot oven 220C, 425F, Gas 7 for 30 minutes. If necessary, reduce the temperature to 190C, 375F, Gas 5 after 20 minutes. Then make a series of slits in the sides to allow the steam to escape and the insides to dry. If they remain damp when the gougere cools, it will be soft and tough, not crisp. Return to the oven, turned off, and dry for 10 minutes with the door slightly open. Serve either hot or cold.
