It’s Zippy Tip Tuesday!
A few months ago, my S.O. and I had a rather humorous conversation involving the word “profiteroles” . I was making a batch one evening; and well, I guess you could say there was a wee bit of some miscommunication! To read about it, click here: Chocolate Covered Strawberry Profiteroles.
It’s amazing to me that I have always admired the grandeur and impressive presentation of profiteroles (or cream puffs/eclairs, as more commonly known), and somehow assumed that they must be a most difficult pastry to make.
That couldn’t be further from the truth. The process is not only simple, but it only takes a few minutes of prep time to make them. The result is a splendid pastry cavern to fill with everything from fruit and cream to egg salad or roast beef. It is even possible to make a miniature version to use as a dipping implement, like the Profiterole Dunkin’ Sticks in my Chocolate Covered Cherry Lime Dip .
