1 cup milk

8 tablespoons (1 stick) unsalted butter 

1 teaspoon kosher salt 

1 cup all-purpose flour 

1/4 cup almond flour 

5 large eggs 

1 cup grated Gruyere cheese

2 teaspoons freshly ground black pepper 

2 teaspoons minced fresh thyme

Aged Gouda or Gruyere, shredded or grated, for sprinkling 


Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Add the milk, butter and salt to a medium saucepan and bring to a boil over medium heat. Add the all-purpose flour and almond flour; stir vigorously using a heat-proof spatula. Cook, stirring constantly, until a dense dough that pulls away from the side of the pot forms, about 3 minutes.

Transfer the dough to a stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment and run briefly to cool a bit. Add 1 egg at a time, making sure the egg is fully incorporated before adding the next. Add the Gruyere, pepper and thyme; mix until just combined.

Using a 1-tablespoon scoop, drop the dough onto a parchment-lined cookie sheet. Top with a sprinkle of cheese. Bake until puffed up and browned in color, 30 to 40 minutes.
