This recipe is perfect for entertaining. I created a simple yet authentic French meal accompanied by these delicious gougere puffs. Simple yet satisfying.
I loved these. I didn't put them in a ring, but made little individual puffs. I had been hunting for a recipe for gougere for a while. This really fit the bill.
