On a sheet of parchment paper placed on a tray, make small piles and then freeze the whole. Keep the gougères in the freezer in a bag while waiting to take them out according to your needs.
In due time, cook the frozen gougères on a sheet of parchment paper in an oven at 180 ° C. The duration of the cooking (15 to 25 minutes without opening the oven) depends on the size of the gougères.
