I used to make these when I attended Hotel School, beating that pastry until my stirring arm felt like it would fall off. Haven't made them for years, may have to try them again. Nothing like fresh cream in them, not the awful pastry crime

how many cream puffs will this recipe make

Do we mix the filling ingredients til just mixed, or longer since whipping cream is an ingredient? And how many does this recipe make? Those of us who don't have a lot of experience need more information. Thank you for your help.

I cannot use wisks I should just use a whipping fork. But it will tire your arm.

Hello!
Shawn, unless you are Julia Childs incarnate, consider an electric mixer!

And this pastry cream recipe is intriguing, but what size pudding box is used? Thank you!

DANIELLE said...

Thanks for sharing. They sound delicious. I'm confused though as to what you mean "MAKE PROFITEROLES & SLICE IN HALF-I ONLY USED THE BOTTOMS. RESERVE TOPS FOR CREAM PUFFS! MMMMM!" Sounds like you are saying you use the bottoms for something??? and the tops for cream puffs???? Sorry, I'm confused.
