Gougères Tea Sandwiches With Spiced Carrots, Tapenade, and Ricotta Recipe

Gougères Tea Sandwiches With Spiced Carrots, Tapenade, and Ricotta Recipe

This is one of those sandwiches that usually don’t get the attention it deserves. Maybe the combination of flavors doesn’t totally resonate, or it’s just that people either love or hate tapenade, but, for whatever reason, this is a totally under appreciated combination. With spiced carrots and earthy olives, the sandwich pulls together bold Moroccan flavors in one tiny tea sandwich, and the bite-size package is as crave-worthy as it is cute. The name is long, Gougères Tea Sandwiches With Spiced Carrots, Tapenade, and Ricotta recipe, but the preparation is shorter, we swear.
