Introduction

A friend made this for me last night and I just had to get the recipe. It is a recipe from the Burgundy area of France and is delicious served with soup or salads I suppose the easiest comparison is that it is the French version of a cheese scone but much more buttery and flaky.

  • In a pan mix the water, butter, salt & pepper. Slowly bring to the boil. Take this off the heat and add all of the flour. Mix this until it forms a ball.
  • Add the 3 eggs one at a time. Add two thirds of the cheese.
  • Butter a dish (I think my friend used a round tin of approx 23cm) add the mix and sprinkle with the last of the cheese.
  • Put the dish into an oven preheated at 240 degrees Centigrade for 35 minutes and do not open the oven before this time as it will sink. Serve and enjoy!
