After a day of running around and thinking that I didn’t have time this afternoon to make this week’s French Fridays with Dorie assigned recipe- these delightful mini puffs filled with herbed goat cheese- I realized that the best thing I could do was to whip up a batch of these puffs just to calm my nerves (cleaning up of the kitchen, taking the photos and writing up this post- now that’s another story!) Even though I’m a big fan of a clean kitchen, it’s not one of my favorite activities. Things I like to do in the kitchen; bake, drink sparkling water, put fruit in bowls and fill up my freezer.
Thanks Dorie! Baking up a batch of these cute mini puffs was fun. After I tried filling a few puffs using a pastry bag and not really loving the look of my puffs with their hidden filling, I switched over to cutting the puffs in half and spreading the herbed cream cheese over the bottom half of the puff, much better.
I’m making and serving mini herbed goat cheese puffs for an appetizer for Thanksgiving this year. I think they make the perfect nibble before the grand entrance of the bird with all the trimmings.
This post participates in French Fridays with Dorie. Please consider picking up a copy of Around My French Table by Dorie Greenspan and cooking along with this lovely group. Here is a recipe for mini puffs with goat cheese and herbs from Better Homes and Gardens, just leave out the nutmeg, use herbed goat cheese and by all means throw in those herbs-that sounds good!
