Cheese Puffs (Gougeres)

Gougeres are French cheese puffs made with a choux pastry and loaded with cheese. Gougere is my favourite recipe to bake after I crave for tacky puffs.

Those little packages are so suitable and addictive. Loaded with  styles of cheese: mozzarella and Parmesan cheese. They are full of exceptional aroma, flavorful and delicious. I just can’t forestall consuming them!
