Praline cream puffs


For this praline cream puffs recipe, made with fine PDO Charentes-Poitou butter and a praline flavour, puffs give many possibilities. Once you mastered the choux pastry, you will be able to vary the flavors and to decline them from the simple chouquette (small choux sprinkled with pearl sugar) to the iconic Paris-Brest!
