I made another Effortless Cardi, because I loved making and wearing my first one, and because I wanted a white casual sweater. And I had the yarn in my stash. As if I needed a reason to knit up somethin'!
So this is the pretty sweater.
(More info on my Ravelry page.)
And this is the pretty day.And now for the recipe.GOUGERE
Heat to boiling:
1 C milk
8 Tbls. butter
1 t. salt
1 Tbls. prepared Dijon mustard
Turn off heat and dump in all at once:
1 C flour
Stir until mixture pulls away from pan. This is basic choux pastry. Let rest for 5 minutes then put into food processor. Add 4 room temperature eggs, one at a time, process for 15 seconds in between.
2 C grated cheese, mixture of Gruyere and Parmesan is traditional.
Dollop mixture into a ring shape onto a parchment lined cookie sheet. Bake at 350 degrees F for about 1/2 hour or until nicely browned. Serves 6-8 for first course or lunch. The one pictured above was one and a half recipes. Also, I beat one egg and paint the top before baking.
I serve this ALL THE TIME and never fails to get raves. It nearly explodes in the oven with puffy yummyness and Parmesan aromas.
Just writing about it makes me pretty hungry right now!
