  • ½ C parmesan cheese

  • ½ tsp (2 g) fresh ground pepper

  • ½ tsp (2.5 g) salt

  • 1 tsp of seasoning

  1. Preheat the oven to 400°F (204°C). Place one oven rack in the top third and a second rack in the bottom third of the oven. Line two rimmed baking sheets with lightly greased parchment paper.

  2. In a 3- or 4-quart (18- or 20-cm) saucepan over medium heat, bring the water, butter, and half the salt to a simmer, stirring until the butter melts.

  3. Add the flour all at once, stirring rapidly with a wooden spoon until the mixture forms a smooth, thick paste with no lumps. Remove the pan from heat and allow the mixture to cool until it feels just warm.

  4. Using a hand-held mixer, beat in one egg at a time until all are incorporated.

  5. Stir in the cheese, pepper, remaining salt, and your choice of Oak City Spice Blend seasoning.

  6. Drop spoonfuls of dough 3 inches (7.6 cm) apart onto the prepared baking sheets.

  7. Bake until the dough is puffed and golden brown, about 30 minutes, swapping the position of the baking pans halfway through.

  8. Serve warm and enjoy the delightful, customizable flavors of your gougères
