I decided to make these little cheesy biscuits during the day today. They really do just take like salty, cheesy, peppery goodness. Of course, I munched on one this afternoon, but check out the next recipe for a whole new idea of what to do with them. This recipe only makes five of these little clouds of delight, so trust me, you'll eat them this weekend - 1 or 2 right now; 1 or 2 with dinner tonight, and maybe one tomorrow morning.
Serves: 1 Cooking Time: 1 hour, with time to walk away Difficulty: Doable on a weeknight
- 1/3 c. water
- 1 T. unsalted butter
- 1 tsp. salt
- 1/3 c. flour
- 1 egg
- 1/3 shredded gruyere cheese
- black pepper
Preheat the oven to 400 degrees. Spray a baking sheet with cooking spray. Lay a piece of parchment paper on top.
Bring the water, salt and butter to a simmer on the stove. Whisk and stir in the flour until a ball forms.
Transfer the dough to a bowl and use a mixer to blend in one egg. Fold in the cheese and as much pepper as you like. Scoop into five small balls on the parchment-lined cooking sheet.
Bake in the oven for 30 minutes. Remove and let cool on a warming rack. These can be reheated or kept warm in a low oven if not being served right away.
