Week 49 – December 3, 2014 – December 9, 2014
Made on December 6, 2014

I’ve been wanting to make some sort of cream puff/profiterole for a long time now. Basically since making them in Italy. I decided to try making these ones from Food & Wine. I mainly wanted to try the cream puff part and I was going to figure out my own filling.

The recipe for the cream puffs were easy to follow. I even had all the ingredients already, so I didn’t have to go out to buy anything. I may have added a little bit too much butter though. Or perhaps I accidentally used salted butter instead of unsalted because they seemed like they would go better with a savory filling than with a sweet one. I ended up filling them with some caramel sauce I had and drizzling a little on top. Since the original recipe talked about salted caramel, I even sprinkled some salt on it. But all I could taste was the butter. I feel like these cream puffs would go well with a ham and cheese filling, or something like that. Still, it was pretty cool to put the dough on the baking sheet. I was sure there was no way they would rise/puff up, but they did! That was cool.
