Cook the Book: White Cheddar Puffs with Green Onions
You may also know today's Cook the Book dish, white cheddar puffs with green onions, as gougères. Though they're traditionally made with Swiss gruyère, Bon Appétit's cheddar and scallion variation is distinctly American. Essentially a savory version of the choux pastry used to make profiteroles and éclairs, the puffy, golden domes somehow manage to be both rich and airy at the same time.
