Lemon-Parsley Gougeres

Ingredients

  • 6 tbsp unsalted butter
  • 1 tsp coarse salt
  • ¼ tsp cayenne pepper
  • ¾ c all-purpose flour
  • 5 large eggs
  • Zest of 1 lemon
  • 3 scallions, finely chopped
  • 3 tbsp finely chopped fresh curly-leaf parsley

Instructions

  1. Bring 1 cup water, the butter, salt, and cayenne to a boil in a heavy 4-quart saucepan; boil until butter has melted. Remove from heat; stir in flour. Return to burner; cook, stirring, until mixture comes together and pulls away from the pan, about 2 minutes more.

  2. Remove from heat. Using a wooden spoon, beat in 4 eggs, 1 at a time, until they are incorporated and smooth. Stir in zest, scallions, and parsley.

  3. Transfer mixture to a piping bag, and cut a ½-inch opening. Pipe 1-inch rounds onto baking sheets lined with parchment paper. Alternatively, drop rounded teaspoons of batter onto baking sheets lined with parchment. If not using immediately, freeze up to 1 month in airtight containers or resealable plastic bags.

  4. Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Whisk together remaining egg and 1 teaspoon water in a small bowl; lightly brush on top of each puff. Bake until lightly golden brown, about 20 minutes. Serve immediately.
