French Fridays with Dorie – Goat Cheese Mini Puffs

Goat Cheese Mini Puffs from My Baking Heart

I was a little ‘iffy’ when I saw that this week’s choice involved goat cheese. My mom never served it and even though I’ve been quite the foodie these past few years, I’d never bought any. However, after a very special tasting inside Remy (Disney’s French restaurant aboard the Fantasy), I’ve come to love this often sought-after cheese.

It was a calming task mixing the dough and preparing the cheese and once they were out of the oven, cooled and filled, I truly enjoyed them. It’s a perfect little appetizer to serve during your holiday cocktail parties or even as a side dish on the buffet table and I can’t wait to make them again… which will be very soon!

I never used to eat much goat cheese as well and now I can’t get enough of it. Funny how tastes change- especially when you get that one recipe that turns the corner for you. Yours turned out lovely- well done !!

Aren’t your mini-puffs lovely…….your close-ups really do these morsels of goodness justice. I’m hungry for them just looking at your pictures. Goat cheese is good, isn’t it, and very versatile. Put out a log of goat cheese, throw some fig jam, pepper jelly or another flavor over it and serve with crackers. Delicious. Simple.
