Cheddar Dill Gougères
1/2 cup water
1/2 cup milk
½ cup unsalted butter, cut into tablespoons
Large pinch of kosher salt
1 cup better batter all-purpose flour (gluten free of course)
4 large eggs
1 cup cheddar cheese, plus more for sprinkling
1 tsp. dill, plus more for sprinkling
Freshly ground pepper
Preheat the oven to 400. Line two baking sheets with parchment paper.
** This is what it should look like after you add the flour
Turn the dough out into a stand mixer with the paddle attachment. Add the eggs one at a time, mixing thoroughly between each one. Add the cheddar cheese, dill and pepper. ** i dont like too much pepper personally.. i know.. im weird so i just put a couple of little shakes soo depending on how much you like personally is how much you add
** before the eggs, cheese and dill
**After eggs are mixed with cheese and dill in there (they arent mixed yet)
** everything mixed! i know it looked weird but its good trust me
Transfer the dough to a pastry bag with a half inch tip (or a disposable bag with the tip cut off) and pipe tablespoonfuls onto the baking sheets at least two inches apart. **they are VERY sticky so prepare yourself
The gougers can be frozen or refrigerated. To reheat, cook in an 350 degree oven for at least five minutes, or until hot and crispy. :) even through all the mess ups and mishaps today they still tasted great and i recommend them but.. im biased to anything cheesey and bready lol hope you like them just as much as me!! :)
