French cheese bun, peerless guzhi recipe


Saturday, May 28, 2016

Guzhery is usually called a variety of unsweetened custard rolls, in the composition of the dough for which there is cheese. As a rule, they are prepared in the form of small portioned balls or with one pie in a round shape with a hole. Fragrant cheese guzhira can be served with wine or first courses. If you wish, you can fill them with cream cheese, slices of red fish, caviar, salad - you get just an amazing snack.

From the indicated amount of ingredients, you will have 15-20 medium-sized custard buns. In order for the result not to disappoint and homemade cheese baking was a success, strictly follow the step-by-step recommendations and use only high-quality products. Have a good experience, friends!

Cooking in steps:

The recipe for cheese custard rolls includes wheat flour (I have the highest grade, but I can have the first one), milk (of any fat content), drinking water, chicken eggs (I have 3 very large ones), butter, and very little salt. You can take absolutely any cheese (such as Russian, Dutch, Poshekhonsky, Suluguni and the like) that melts well. But it will be even tastier and more aromatic if you use aromatic cheese (Parmesan, Gruyere).

We take a small saucepan (preferably with a thick bottom) or a saucepan, pour milk and water into it.

We put butter in the same place (the best is soft, so that it melts faster, but it doesn’t matter), a pinch of salt and put everything on fire.

Let the liquid warm up and the oil completely melt. We bring everything to a boil, not forgetting to stir so that the milk does not stick to the bottom.

Now, stirring the mass in a circular motion, we fall asleep in the pan IMMEDIATELY ALL FLOUR. This is important - so there will be no lumps in the custard dough.

Constantly kneading and do not remove the dishes from the fire (below average), we should get a completely homogeneous and smooth dough. I would say that in the process of brewing a thick and dense lump of dough is formed. Now we need to dry the dough (another 2 minutes on a fire below average), for which we constantly knead it with a spatula, wait until a thin crust of dried dough forms on the bottom of the dishes. In this case, the lump itself will begin to lag behind the walls and bottom of the pan. This is also important when preparing custard dough for eclairs and profiteroles.

That's it - the process of brewing the dough is completed, it needs to be slightly cooled. To do this, it is most convenient to shift the lump into other dishes, which should be cooled in advance.

With a spatula or a whisk, break a lump of dough so that it quickly cools to a very warm state (not hot!). If you start to introduce chicken eggs into a hot dough, they can curl up and fail.

Now one (!) We introduce raw chicken eggs into the choux pastry. After each, knead the dough very carefully with a spoon or spatula to achieve uniformity. I use 3 chicken eggs in this recipe, larger than average (75-80 grams each). You may need from 3 to 6 eggs - it all depends on their size. That is why after adding a third or fourth egg to the dough, focus on the consistency of the resulting mass. If you understand that the dough is still too thick and difficult to mix, add another egg. But not all at once, but break it into a bowl in advance and add a little. You may need the whole egg, or maybe a third or half. It is important to stop in time, otherwise the dough will be too thin.

Since the consistency of the choux pastry depends on many factors (for example, the quality and humidity of wheat flour, the size of eggs), you should understand what to expect as a result. The finished custard dough should be completely smooth, shiny and be without lumps. It is neither thick nor liquid - it slides off the shoulder blade with a heavy, wide ribbon. If, for example, you make the choux pastry too thick, it will not only be difficult to put it out of the cooking bag, but the products themselves will not rise well, they will be too dry and hard. When cooking too much liquid dough, the gujers will spread out on the baking sheet and will not be able to keep their shape.
