Perfect for the Holidays - Cream Puff Swans!
Do you know how to make a French Pastry Cream? (Now you do!)
A batch of this rich vanilla custard is always good to have on hand - for a simple dessert with fruit, chocolate, cookies, etc.
More importantly, you'll need this classic preparation called "creme patisserie" for a tasty filling of cream puffs and pastry swans. "Oohs" and "Aahs" are guaranteed when you present this fancy dessert on a beautifully "painted" plate.
Find detailed instructions with step-by-step photos of the procedure on my new Squidoo lens:
