Carla Makes Life-Changingly Good Cream Puffs | From the Test Kitchen | Bon Appétit

  • Published: 21 September 2017
  • The cream puff is the Eiffel Tower of Parisian pastries: iconic, beloved, and displayed everywhere. The recipe is so irrefutably timeless that even Pierre Hermé, France's most famous (and endlessly innovative) pastry chef, still uses the formula he learned as a 14-year-old apprentice.

            My mom can't bake. The only thing she can do is make a killer cream puff....... And that's as far as her baking skills go.

                  Try adding dry small curd cottage cheese to the cream. It is a national dessert in Latvia and it is called "Vecrīga" which translets to Oldriga. It is very good.

                                                If only they would use proper measures. So important especially in baking. There is no Stick of butter anywhere outside the US. The difference between a cup and c cup can be more than 30%. No wonder people are stiffening with recipes.

                                                                  The most encouraging thing about these videos is that none of them (except Chris's ) go perfectly. It's so REAL and endearing and makes me feel like even if I mess up a little, I can usually fix it!! That's why this channel has encouraged me to come up with my own recipies, make pie dough FROM SCRATCH AND BY HAND (which my mother and grandmother can't even do), and generally just really try recipes I never would.

                                                                  • Emanne Balaghi

                                                                    • Paul

I was too focused on following the recipe and not watching my dough so I added too much egg. It was a humid day when I made this so the dough was naturally more liquidity. Watch your dough and keep checking for the “V” shape. You DO NOT need to add 6 eggs. I added 4 eggs and it was too much!!!

                                                                                  • Nandini Goyal

                                                                                        I can make this without issue. My question is how do I transport it without getting soft? I cooled the baked dough for 1 hr and transported it to a friend's place before filling with Earl Grey pastry creme. In the 30m drive they got slightly soft 🤦
