Tuesdays with Dorie (Baking Chez Moi): Chocolate Cream Puffs with Mascarpone Filling

Chocolate cream puffs from Baking Chez Moi for Tuesdays with Dorie on eatlivetravelwrite.comThis week’s Tuesdays with Dorie recipe from Baking Chez Moi was a recipe I made four years ago when Baking Chez Moi first came out. Profiteroles are always a good idea and Dorie has the brilliant idea to make this chocolate version which appears in Baking Chez Moi.

I just flew home from San Francisco (on a redeye flight – which I have decided I am clearly too old to do anymore – I was pretty useless yesterday and basically caught up on three days’ sleep in one, when I was planning on doing a little baking… (I think, though, after making and photographing hundreds of Dorie recipes every week – sometimes multiple times in a week – over the past near decade, I’ve got a few free passes to use!).

Baked chocolate profiteroles from Baking Chez Moi on eatlivetravelwrite.comThese really are such a lovely version of profiteroles/ cream puffs and, like all choux pastry, they impress people no end…

Mascarpone filled chocolate profiteroles from Baking Chez Moi on eatlivetravelwrite.comInstead of filling them with whipped cream as is typical, these have a filling of mascarpone tinged with rosewater and a touch of red food colouring. I don’t like the flavour of rose so much and rarely have rosewater on hand so I went with the plain version of the filling, with just as tasty results!

So pretty, these would make a great addition to any holiday dessert buffet, wouldn’t they?
