Gougeres und Kinder

Here's my french food for the week! I made some Gougeres which is a french cheese ball or pastry. They are so yummy! You should try them as an appetizer for a party. I liked the rugged look although the recipe instructs you to make balls which is the traditional look.
*preheat oven to 425 degrees*
Combine 1 cup water, 4 Tablespoons butter, and 1/2 tsp. of salt in medium saucepan; turn the heat to medium-high and bring to a boil. Cook, Stirring, until the butter melts, just a minute or two longer. Take off heat. Add 1 1/2 cups a flour all at once to this mixture, stirring constantly until the dough holds together in a ball. 5 minutes or less.
Add your 2 eggs one at a time, beating hard after each addition. (can use electric mixer) Stir in cheeses: 1 cup of either grated Emmenthal, Gruyere, Cantal, or Cheddar and then 1 cup of Grated Parmesan or other hard cheese. (2 cups of cheese total)
Grease baking sheet!
Drop by teaspoonfuls ( can make perfect balls) on baking sheet and bake until light brown, 10-15 min.

Happy's really easy, I promise!!

Everyone is happy when we have two of something. As you see here, they both have cars shoes and they are very happy while watching cartoons and eating eggs and toast.
