Lighter Than Air—Cream Puffs

Lecture no. 4 from the course: The Everyday Gourmet: Baking Pastries and Desserts

Lighter Than Air—Cream Puffs

Taught by Professor Stephen L. Durfee | 37 min | Categories: The Great Courses Plus Online Food & Wine Courses

Cream-puff pastry is unique in that it’s a twice-cooked pastry dough. And its applications go far beyond what you’d expect. In this lesson, master the art of baking and experimenting with puff pastry and use it to create some unbelievably decadent desserts. Among these: chocolate éclairs, cream puffs, and deep-fried Mexican churros. Along the way, you’ll also get tips on making pastry cream, chocolate ganache, and caramel topping.
