Today I am going to reintroduce an old recipe anew: choux pastry in the form of hearts with a raspberry filling. This is an airy and light dessert. Don’t be intimidated by choux pastry. I have discovered a new recipe which never fails me. Below I piped the choux pastry to hearts, but you are free to also make traditional profiteroles or eclairs if you wish. The raspberry filling is not too sweet, more on the tart side and very fruity. I reduced the amount of butter and cream cheese in order to make is really taste like raspberries.
Today you will get Gougère from Switzerland! Gougères are cheese balls made from choux pastry. They are super light and airy. If you like eclairs and profiteroles, these are for you, a savory snack made from exactly the same dough, choux pastry is first boiled before eggs are added. If you are interested in sweet choux pastry, how about profiteroles with raspberry filling, black forest eclairs, eclairs with coffee cream or peanut butter filling. Below cheese balls are a wonderful fingerfood, snack, or can be served for any gathering.
I do have a few eclairs on my blog, today I am introducing eclairs with coffee filling, dalgona stlye. I also have black forest eclairs, eclairs with peanut butter filling, or eclairs with raspberries on my blog to name only a few. So why the need for another eclair recipe? The reason is two-fold. Reason number 1 is my hubby, who can eat eclairs every single day. His face will light up once I say eclair. We have been to the south of France a few times and he would always either buy eclairs or tartelette au citron in the boulangerie as one of the first actions. And the second reason is because I had to try Dalgona or whipped coffee finally in a recipe.
