Cream Pie Cream Puffs

 




 

Delight your friends and family with this homemade recipe for Cream Puffs with fresh choux pastry and vanilla custard filling.

 

Whenever I visit a nice bakery it can take some time to finally decide what to order. Lots of delicious pastries, so little time, you know?

 

But there is one treatment I can't resist: Cream Puff.

 

If I happen to be one of those puff pastry stuffed with light cream in the pastry box, you can bet I wouldn't walk without one (or three). (The same goes for Rice Krispy desserts!)

 

I like to chomp on someone with a cup of cold brew coffee, and enjoy every bit of choux pastry and cream filling.

 

Today, I am happy to show you how to make cream puffs at home. It is easier than you think!

 

To make cream pies, you need to start by creating a type of pastry called "choux".

 

Chou pastry is the classic light pastry that many French desserts think of.

 

It is made with only butter, flour, eggs and water, and unlike other types of dough, it does not contain any leavening agents whatsoever.

 

Because of its high content of water and fat, it "puffs" during baking, creating a light and airy coating for the delicious cream filling in this recipe.

 

For this cream, I also added a hint of vanilla extract to my choux pastry recipe to complement the vanilla cream filling.

To terminate

 

Garnish the cabbage: Punch the cabbage with the tip of a paring knife or fluted nozzle. Garnish the cabbage until it's heavy. Dip the cabbage tips in caramel (100g sugar + 60g water)
