These puffs are perfect for parties, especially when paired with champagne. Cook Time: 40 minutes.

How to Make It

Step 1

Preheat oven to 425°. Heat butter and 1 cup water in a medium saucepan over medium heat until butter is melted and mixture comes to a simmer.

Step 2

Turn heat to low, add flour, and stir vigorously until mixture forms a ball that pulls away from pan sides, about 1 minute. Remove pan from heat.

Step 3

Add eggs, one at a time, stirring vigorously after each. Dough will separate after each addition; keep stirring until it forms a smooth paste.

Step 4

Stir in gruyère cheese, parmesan cheese, Dijon mustard, and freshly ground black pepper.

Step 5

Drop mixture in heaping tablespoonfuls onto 2 buttered baking sheets. Bake until puffed and brown, about 30 minutes. Cut slits in sides of puffs, return to oven, and lower heat to 350°. Bake 10 minutes.

Classic Party hit

December 25, 2015
These are great, and always a big hit at parties. Only thing wrong with recipe is heaping tablespoonfuls do not give you the right amount of gougeres. Heaping teaspoonfuls are more like it.
