Strawberries & Cream Puffs


Strawberries and cream puffs - crisp, golden domes of choux pastry, lightly dusted with icing sugar and filled with fresh strawberries and whipped cream

These cream puffs (or profiteroles) are crisp on the outside, fluffy and buttery on the inside. I made some whipped cream with vanilla and a little sugar. I also mixed some of the cream with rose syrup. As there was some red bean paste in the fridge, I mixed some of it with the cream to make a creamy red bean filling. These choux pastries are easy to prepare and are best eaten immediately so that they maintain their crisp exterior. Fantastic drizzled with chocolate sauce!
