holiday sides

Light Puffs with Goat Cheese and Cilantro

I love baking, finding and trying new recipes and sometimes changing few ingredients just for the little bit different aroma. Holidays are coming and we need nice, light sides especially if we’re talking about dough department. This French recipe is excellent, light and fluffy with beautiful aroma and it’s great addition to meat dishes, salads, soups or just about everything.

Light Puffs with Goat Cheese and Cilantro

Serves 6

3/4 cup pastry flour

1/4 tsp sea salt

pinch of allspice

3/4 cup water, warm

4 tbsp sweet cream butter

3 eggs

3 ounces Goat cheese


Preheat the oven to 400F. Lightly grease the baking sheet. Sift together the flour, salt, allspice.

In the medium saucepan, bring the water and butter to a boil.

Remove from the heat and add the dry ingredients all at once. Beat with the wooden spoon for about 1 minute until the mixture is well blended and starts to pull away from the sides of the pan.

Place the pan over lowe heat and cook for 2 minutes, beating constantly, then remove the pan from the heat.

Beat the eggs together in a small bowl and then very gradually, beat into the mixture, beating thoroughly after each addition until dough is smooth and shiny.

It should pull away and fall slowly when dropped from a spoon-you may not need all the beaten eggs.

Add the goat cheese chunk and chopped cilantro and mix slowly.

Using two large tablespoons arrange mounds of dough onto the baking sheet.

Bake for 25 minutes until well browned.

Cool slightly but serve warm.
