I remember the first time creating these guys was in hospitality class in high school, many years ago. A good ol’ versatile choux pastry in need of major elbow grease. Resulting in delicious puffs and eclairs. I even made it a few years back, they came out too dry, you wouldn’t think it possible to overbake these guys… but i found out it was quite possible XD I also had a love for delicious custard puffs and that’s what I always try to buy whenever I head to an asian bakery back in Sydney.
Today, I have revisited the choux pastry with my partner in crime and nutted out some dainty mini puffs. I’ve been craving some custard puffs… but we only had a finite amount of eggs… cue in 3, enough to make the puffs but not the custard XD I sat cross-legged in front of the oven watching them become golden and yummy. When at last, after a few hurdles, they came out smelling great, we filled the cute little puffs with raspberry jam, drizzled with vanilla sauce and devoured in front of episodes of Arrow. Satisfied little home bakers we are :]
