Today was a dark, gray, drizzly day. The kind of day that makes you want to hunker down with a blanket and tea and stay home. We don’t have very many days like today where I live, but when it happens I love it! You see, I grew up in Seattle where there are too many dark, gray, drizzly days. I love days like this because they remind me of home. Days like this even evoke certain (good) feelings and memories. It also helps that I know tomorrow (or the next day) will likely be back to our sunnier weather.
Today I also made Goat-Cheese Mini Puffs. Savory little cream puffs filled with a mixture of herbed goat cheese, cream cheese, and heavy cream (I’m not sure I’ve ever used the word cream so many times in one sentence before…).
I only made a few of the puffs and froze the rest of the unbaked dough to use over the holidays. I’m sure glad I only made a few because these little puffs are rich!
Goat-Cheese Mini Puffs would be the perfect appetizer for a holiday party. Rich and delicious, and fun to eat! I bet they would be quite tasty with champagne.
