– 130 g (1 cup) of flour
– 75 g (1/3 of cup) of butter
– 25 cl (1 cup) of milk
– 4 eggs
– 200 g (1/2 lb) of Fromager d’Affinois Blue cheese

Preheat the oven to 180°C.
Cut the cheese into small cubes.
Place the milk and butter into a saucepan and add two pinches of salt.
Bring to the boil, then remove from the heat and fold in the flour using a spatula.
Return the saucepan to a medium heat and stir continuously for around 5 minutes until a paste is formed.
Then remove from the heat and add the whole eggs, one by one, then the cheese.
Once well mixed, place the dough into a pastry bag and pipe the mixture into small balls around 2cm in diameter onto a baking sheet lined with greaseproof paper.
Using a pastry brush, brush each gougère lightly with milk then bake in the oven for around 20 to 25 minutes.
