Goat-Cheese Mini Puffs

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.

This post participates in French Fridays with Dorie, an online cooking group working our way through Dorie Greenspan’s Around My French Table.  We don’t share the recipes, but you should really get this wonderful book anyway!

  1. Gorgeous looking puffs!! I know what you mean about the grey days that remind you of home! Sometimes it has the same effect on me. I like them very much as long as I know that soon we will be back to normal again! :)

  2. Yep, there was a lot of cream in those little bites :-)
    I don’t mind a gray day here and there, but when they string together in a whole lot of gray days, it can be a little tiring.
    Your puffs look perfect.
    Have a great Thanksgiving.
