This week's recipe from "Around My French Table" is goat-cheese
mini puffs. Much practice is needed on my part to perfect a cream
puff that looks like a puff, but I am going to keep trying.
The recipe was fun and the filling was so delicious.
I used a garlic flavored goat cheese mixed with the cream
cheese and cream. Even though my puffs came out in different
shapes and sizes they were good.
After filling about 24 puffs, ( a messy job all by itself) I decided to
share some with Tricia's family. As much as we loved them, I could
not see eating that many.
These little morsels would be great to serve with a glass of wine, and
the delicious herbed olives selected for next week's entry.
Spoiler alert. Nana made these ahead of time and shared them with
my guys. My older son declared-"wow. I like these way more than I should"
...which struck me as an odd, yet very positive declaration on a Dorie recipe.
Needless to say, I was then on the hook to make some myself this week.
The recipe is a few steps but if I would get organized and keep some of
these in the freezer ready to bake, it would really be a spectacular treat.
I would definitely make these for company (but ahead of time)
since they were yummy as well as impressive looking.
I am also sharing belated photos from our recent trip to Vermont -
at least the "foodie" side, plus our new addition........
