A Quick History!

Alas! I thought I would share something interesting I found at ktello.wordpress.com concerning cream puffs. Enjoy!

"Did you know the real name for these delectable treats is Profiterole?
According to wikipedia “A profiterole or cream puff or Eddie (United States regionalism) is a popular choux pastry. Choux paste is baked into small round puffs that are served cold with a sweet filling and sometimes a topping. The usual fillings are whipped cream and pastry cream. The puffs may be left plain or cut to resemble swans or decorated with chocolate sauce, caramel, or a dusting of powdered sugar. This dessert is not to be confused with puff pastry.”
Clearly much more dignified than puff pastry.
Oh there is also a savory version of the cream puff that you can fill with… uh… meat puree? They are called Gougeres…tastes as good as it sounds I’m sure."

Isn't that interesting boys and girls!? Something new learned everyday.
