Expert Tips

Gruyère is a moderate-fat cow's milk cheese. It has a pale yellow interior with well-spaced medium-size holes. Avoid Gruyère wedges that have a very large number of irregularly shaped or excessively small holes because it may be a sign of poor quality.

To make one large ring, drop the dough by tablespoonfuls into an 8-inch ring, and bake 50 to 60 minutes.
