Golden Chanterelle Puffs
- 1 cup chicken broth
- 1/2 pound chanterelles* minced
- 1/2 cup butter - (1 stick)
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1 cup unbleached all-purpose flour
- 3 eggs
* Alternate Mushrooms: Fairy-Ring Mushroom
Heat the chicken broth in a heavy medium saucepan. Add the chanterelles, butter, and salt and allow to come to a boil. Stir in the flour, mixing constantly until the mixture is smooth and almost leaves the sides of the pan. Remove from the heat. Beat one egg at a time into the mixture.
Drop tablespoons of the dough onto a buttered cookie sheet, spacing the spoonfuls about 2 inches apart. Bake in a preheated 450 degree oven for 15 minutes or until firm and golden. Cool the puffs on a rack.
This recipe yields about 35 puffs.
