January 2 – National Cream Puff Day! Sweet!
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.
Keto Cream Puffs Anyone?
As a keto newbie, of course I had to do some research… I have not yet made these… but I will! Here’s a keto friendly recipe for strawberry cream puffs… I cannot take credit… it goes to Simply So Healthy.
