Italian (Parmesan) Gougères
-1 recipe Choux Pastry
-1 cup Parmesan Cheese, plus more for sprinkling (or any cheese you prefer)
-Salt and pepper
-Garlic powder for sprinkling (optional)
Preheat the oven to 425 degrees F and line a pan with parchment paper.
Prepare your Choux Pastry. Once the dough is ready, mix in the cup of Parmesan and a pinch of salt and pepper.
Scoop the dough into a pastry bag and pipe out little 1 to 1 1/2 inch mounds of dough onto your baking sheet. Sprinkle with garlic powder if using, and a little Parmesan cheese.
Bake for 15-18 minutes, or until the puffs feel hollow when tapped on the bottom. Turn off the oven and let cool in the oven for a few minutes. Remove puffs and allow them to finish cooling. Serve warm along a tasty pasta dish and enjoy!
Note: If you do not use right away, they can be stored in an airtight container. When ready to eat just place them in a 350 degree F oven for a few minutes so that they can warm and crisp up again.
