I have a question about the recipe "Pub Gougères with Anchovy and Cayenne" from withinseason. How far ahead can these be made? the night before? 5 hours? a week and freeze them? thanks!
Gougeres freeze very well. Best way is to shape the puffs onto a sheet pan (you can put them very close together) before baking, freeze until hard, and put them in a freezer bag or other airtight container. Bake as for freshly made dough, but a minute or two longer.
You can also freeze after baking and rewarm in the oven. Not bad, but not optimal.
I second sfmiller's suggestion to freeze before baking. I've done the same with Gougeres a number of times and they always turn out well.

Here's a third vote for freezing before baking. You want to bake them off as close to service as possible. They're good at room temp, but sensational when warm.

Well played. You deserve a cookie.
