Caroline of A Consuming Passion has chosen Peppermint Crem Puff Ring on pages 290-292 from aus Baking: From My Home to Yours *. Dorie was inspired by Paris-Brest, a wheel-shaped cream puff, named after the bicycle race between Paris and Brest. Instead of the rich buttercream this cream puff ist filled with a peppermint cream.
I halved the recipe and used 20 leaves of my curly mint. The recipe recommends a stand mixer, but you can easily make it by hand. Choux pastry dough was one of my first recipes I learnt in a cooking class as a teenager. I used a plastic bag to pipe the dough onto the baking sheet, I had no leftovers for any eclairs.
My gentlemen like the combination of mint and chocolate and although I am not a fan of this
Peppermint Cream-puff Ring with Chocolate Glaze
I was pleased by the taste.
