Le Gruyère AOP flûtes

60' 25'

Le Gruyère AOP flûtes - which are a form of pastry straw - are the perfect canapés to go with a glass of champagne. Prepared in no time, if you serve them still just warm from the oven, you are sure to impress your guests. Anyone can stick some shop-bought conventional cheese straws on a serving plate - but they are simply not comparable with these light, creamy flûtes filled with Le Gruyère AOP. You can also easily prepare them in advance, freeze them and then bake them quickly when you're next expecting visitors. I like to make these refined-tasting flûtes with a crème made with Le Gruyère AOP and herbs. One could, of course, also creatively use various different flavourings, spices or fillings. In my recipe I use Le Gruyère AOP Alpage, as this is very creamy and has a lovely herby note to it - perfect for my recipe. I hope you enjoy making this recipe - and your very good health!

Delicious to know

Please bear in mind that every oven bakes differently. That is to say, if this recipe suggests 25 minutes, you should check every so often after 15 minutes to see if the flûtes are already done. It's a mistake often made to take the baking time stated in the recipe as "Gospel," but a gastro oven generally bakes faster than a conventional household oven.
