Happy National Cream Puff Day!

January 2nd is National Cream Puff Day!  Woo Hoo! To the person who came up with this food holiday, I thank you! A cream puff by any other name is just a pastry, but a cream puff filled with goodness is just shear heaven!

You may also know it as a profiterole or choux à la crème –  a filled French choux pastry ball with a typically sweet filling of whipped cream, custard, pastry cream, ice cream, or sour cream. The puffs may be decorated or left plain or garnished with chocolate sauce, caramel, or a dusting of powdered sugar. Savory profiterole are also made, filled with pureed meats, cheese, and so on. These were formerly common garnishes for soups.
