Gruyère Cheese Gougères

Last Sunday we hosted a Winter Feast in honour of our friend Indre, who successfully defended her Ph.D. dissertation. Nick and I cooked a seven course meal. Most of the dishes were taken from the French Laundry cookbook, by culinary sensei Thomas Keller. Some others were recreations of dishes that Nick had at his brother’s restaurant in Aspen. Each dish was carefully paired with its "perfect" wine.

The evening opened with these Gruyère Cheese Gougères, served on a silver platter as a fun bite-sized appetizer to eat with your hands. They are lighter than air and mostly empty inside, infused with just the right amount of cheese flavour.

This was paired with Schamsberg Brut Rosé sparkling wine.

A collective blog of our experiences of that evening is taking shape at edibles.blogspot.com/.

1 8-ounce package cream cheese, softened
3/4 cup brown sugar
1 teaspoon each, ground cinnamon and nutmeg
1/2 teaspoon each, ginger and salt
3 eggs
1 cup canned pumpkin
1 cup milk
1 teaspoon vanilla

Praline Topping:
1/3 cup packed brown sugar
1/3 cup chopped pecans
1 tablespoon stick butter, softened

Preheat oven to 375º

Beat cream chees with brown sugar and spices, until smooth. Add eggs, 1 at a time, beating well after each.
Stir in pumpkin, milk and vanilla. This mixture will be very soupy!!! Pour into pie shell. Bake about 35-40 minutes.
While pie is baking, prepare praline topping. After 40 minutes, remove pie and sprinkle topping on pie. Bake for
an additional 10 minutes or until knife or toothpick inserted in center, comes out clean. Let pie cool to room temp. Chill.

An excellent pie to make the day before.

2010-05-09 – Boston Cream Pie – 0009

Image by smiteme
Best Boston Cream Pie from Kris Holechek’s The 100 Best Vegan Baking Recipes cookbook (page 91). Very yummy, though we had a little trouble getting the cream filling to thicken up. For bonus points: top with some homemade strawberry sauce.

The Pizza Hummus from Lane Gold’s Vegan Junk Food. I used it to make an HLT – hummus, lettuce and tomato. The "meat" – Lightlife pepperoni – is in the dip!

Reviewed here. (Spoiler alert! It’s a five-star raver.)
