This week’s assignment for Tuesdays with Dorie was a little intimidating at first glance… Apple Kuchen – a deep-dish style apple custard tart.

French Fridays: Strawberry Cream Puffs

One of my absolute favourite French pastries to make is choux pastry. So easy (sssh!) and so versatile because you can make either sweet or savoury iterations – the possibilities for filling and topping choux puffs or éclairs is endless!
