Profiteroles


It's been a while since I post anything here.

Anyone miss me? :D

I was busy with wedding and all that preparation last few weeks and it's finally over! Frankly, I miss being in the kitchen to cook/bake something. I miss experimenting with food! I made some profiteroles the other day and thought of sharing them with you :)



Profiteroles are small choux pastry with hollow rounds.  Profiteroles are smaller version of cream puff. It is usually split in half and filled with whipped creams, ice cream or pastry cream (I usually filled them with pastry cream. Then, topped with chocolate sauce or dusted with powdered sugar.
