Looking for Gordon Hammersley gougere recipe NOW! Ugh.

I am throwing a big b-day party for my pops and Gordon Hammersley's gougere recipe is my favorite go to for cocktail munchies. I cannot find my book! Does any one have it who can reprint the recipe here for me, please? Help - need to make them tonight!! (also, as a copyright lawyer, i can assure you recipes don't get copyright protection, so no worries about the fuzz knockin' down yer door!) thanks all for your help.

  1. I'm not sure what so special about those, but I've made these with great results. In case it comes down to needing any (known) recipe.


    1. 1/2 c water
      6 T unsalted butter, softened to room temp.
      1/2 c. milk
      1/2 tsp. kosher salt
      1 c AP flour
      4 lg. eggs
      3/4 c gated Gruyere
      1/4 c Asiago

      Recipe technique is basically the same as rhe one linked by gourmanda w/these exceptions:
      --no step for extra egg
      --no dill seeds
      --sprinkle tops of gougeres w/asiago before baking
      --oven should be 400F for first 15 min. of baking, lowered to 350 for next 15-20 min.
