Cut a good Creuse cheese (traditionally the Gouzon made from regional cows' milk), and which is soft in the middle, into thin slivers, as fine as possible, that you then put in a stoneware fondue pot in which lightly peppered water is simmering. Add a spoonful of butter. Slowly stir the contents under a low flame to melt the cheese. Then add a large pinch of flour and an egg yolk mixed with two large spoonfuls of fresh cream. Continue to stir slowly to make it mix together properly then pour it through a fine sieve. Serve hot in the fondue pot with sautée potatoes and a plain omelette.
Crush the equivalent of two glasses of ripened and finely roasted nuts with four glasses of sugar. Mix it together with three whipped egg whites and a handful of flour. Add 100 g of melted butter and stir thoroughly. Cook on medium heat. The original Creusois cakes were made by monks in curved tiles.
