Cream Puffs

May 4, 2011 - 2:30 pm

I have just made gluten-free cream puff shells for the first time ever. This is a choux pastry, which is something I’ve never tried to make previously; apparently this is how eclairs and profiteroles are made as well.

I’m not sure I’ve ever baked something so beautiful. And I haven’t filled them with the chocolate pastry cream yet.


here, let’s zoom in:


Now don’t you want to come to knit night at my house tonight?

We make the puffs occasionally- they aren’t hard and are so good. Doughnuts are more of a labor of love, though. 🙂

If you come up to Seattle we will DEFINITELY cook for you! are you coming for Madrona?
