I don’t know what has happened to me the last few days and although I cooked a lot I did not have the time to post about it. Now, I have a little time before I go to pick up my child from school so as to give you a quick and tasty recipe of goat cheese pies. Let’s make them.
Goat Cheese Pies
20-30 small puff pastries (I had 20 but the filling is for 30)
4 tbsp margarine
5 tbsp all purpose flour
2 cups milk, warm
1 large egg
Pinch of nutmeg
1 handful emmental cheese, grated
200 gr. goat cheese, cubed
1 egg thinned with 1 tbsp of water
Preheat oven to 175C.
Make the roux by placing the butter into a pot, in medium heat. When butter is melted throw the flour and whisk for 2 to 3 minutes. Then throw the milk and whisk again. When the the bechamel starts to thicken remove from stove and add the nutmeg, salt and the egg lightly beaten. Put again on fire and add the emmental and goat cheese and whisk until combined. remove from stove let it cool for 5 minutes and then fill the puff pastries. I put 1 tbsp of filling. In order to seal the puff pastry and not open during baking, moisten the tips with a little bit of water and the seal them. Place them in a pan covered with baking paper, coat them with the thinned egg and bake for approximately 20 minutes or until they turn gold. Good Luck
