Went to a house warming last night, and thought I’d bring something a bit different. Something I’ve made before but in a different style. With what I had on hand, I decided to make profiteroles but turn them into swans like I’ve seen in many recipe books in the past.
It’s actually not hard, it’s just a bit more tedious. The method is the same for all puffs, just make sure it’s not too small (I used soup spoons to scoop the dough), and the rest of the dough I put them into a piping bag, and piped several S-shapes to be baked.
Once cooled, cut the top of the puff (like those man-holes), and half the cut-out top. Fill the puffs with custard (mmmmm custardddddd), insert neck, and top with wings!
