A classic, light French pastry is mellowed by the sweet, nutty flavor of Gruyere cheese.
Yield: 12 servings
Purchasing: Gruyere is a moderate-fat cow's milk cheese. It has a pale yellow interior with well-spaced medium-size holes. Avoid Gruy re wedges that have a very large number of irregularly shaped or excessively small holes because it may be a sign of poor quality.
Variation: To make one large ring, drop the dough by tablespoonsful into an 8-inch ring, and bake 50 to 60 minutes.
