I’ve been cooking/baking with Dorie for  about 9 years now.

I managed to make it all the way through Baking from My House to Yours (2006) with the Tuesdays with Dorie Group.  I started late with this one but did make ALL the treats within.

Then they did Around my French Table. (2010) Life got in the way and I only made a few of those recipes. (51)  I am planning to get back to that one.

Baking Chez Moi came out in 2014 but I just wasn’t baking a whole lot for a couple of years.  (17)  My waistline was getting a little out of control.

Dorie’s Cookies (2016) came next and, again, I only made a few of her cookies.  (8)

NOW Dorie has a new book – Everyday Dorie – and I have a chance to again cook with Dorie and a lot of the past members of Tuesday with Dorie.  It’s exciting to have another of Dorie’s cookbooks in my collection.

For those of you who were cooking from Around my French Table you will remember that the very first recipe we did was Gourgères (9/29/10).  (and Dorie left a comment on mine.  I was thrilled!)

So Chapter 2 on the gourgères.

These are supposed to be somewhat hollow in the center – like an empty cream puff made from a pâte à choux but I overcooked mine a tad and they came out more like a small hard biscuit hockey puck.  The cheese and walnuts added some great taste, however.  I know I can make these because I have before.  I think I had other things on my mind.

This is the first of many recipes from Everyday Dorie.  I’ve read through the book and cannot wait to cook/bake some more of them.

Next recipe:  Maple syrup and mustard Brussels sprouts page 212.
