puff!

Hi J -

You have the cutest flower mugs!

(Hi Cute Flower Mugs!)

N causally mentioned cream puff a few weeks ago, and that idea has been stuck in my head ever since. Not that I think we need more to eat after the Cincy Style Chili.

In the pass, I used pâte à choux recipe from Nick Malgieri's Chocolate: From Simple Cookies to Extravagant Showstoppers. This time, I tried the Pierre Hermé recipe, which has milk (the Nick Malgieri recipe does not). I bombed the puffs - big ol fail. They fell down when they were cooling. So I went back to Nick Malgieri's recipe.

I made the new-to-me chocolate glaze from Pierre Hermé's Chocolate Desserts by Pierre Herme ( available here ) and pastry cream from Rose Levy Beranbaum's The Pie and Pastry Bible to go with the puffs. Mmm... can't go wrong when paired with coffee and flower mugs!
