Ricardo's recipes : Three Cheese Gougères (Cheese Puffs)



  1. With the rack in the middle position, preheat the oven to 190 °C (375 °F). Line two baking sheets with parchment paper.
  2. In a saucepan, bring milk, water, butter and sugar to a boil. Remove saucepan from heat. Add flour all at once. Stir vigorously with a wooden spoon. Return pan to heat and continue stirring until the mixture forms a ball that pulls away from the sides of the pan, about 2 minutes.
  3. Remove from heat and add eggs, one at a time, stirring well after each addition until dough is smooth. Stir in cheese.
  4. With a 15 ml (1 tablespoon) ice cream scoop or a pastry bag fitted with a plain tip, form about 15 dough balls per sheet, spacing them evenly.
  5. Bake, one sheet at a time, for about 30 minutes or until cheese puffs are golden brown. Eat warm or at room temperature.


Cheese puffs freeze well. Simply reheat them in a 180 °C (350 °F) oven.


  1. Super ces petites bouchées pour accompagner une soupe lors de journées froides! Je recommande fortement ; c’est très facile à faire.

  2. Yummy appetizer. I love to make ahead and freeze. Just pop in oven to re crisp.
