Well, my post is minus pictures…for now. My toddler absconded with my good camera, and I took some pics with my other one, but now I can’t find the USB cable that fits it. Sigh. They will be forthcoming, I promise! – PICTURES HAVE NOW BEEN ADDED! BAD MOMMY BLAMED THE MISSING CAMERA ON MY SON, AND IT WAS ME ALL ALONG! HOPE YOU LIKE THEM!
Caroline from A Consuming Passion chose Dorie’s Peppermint Cream Puff Ring as this weeks recipe. I apprently am not the only one who decided against the ring and did individual puffs. I have no pastry bag and needed to spoon the dough, so it was my only choice.
I also did not use peppermint. Not because I didn’t have it – I have a HUGE mint plant right outside the door, actually. Because I have had this bottle of hazelnut extract sitting in my cupboard, begging to be used.
The puffs were a breeze to make, much to my delight. They look so complicated to look at one. I know this will be something I will be adding to my Christmas baking in mini form, and what a perfect time to have something mint!
Thanks Caroline – I probably wouldn’t have ever had the nerve to try these otherwise! I just hope there will be some left for hubby to try when he gets home from work tonight!
