    Pate a choux filling

    A few years ago, I was in Seattle and I had some cream puffs in a vietnamese restaurant. These were the best pate a choux I've ever had. The filling was the consistency of a whipped cream, but it has the flavour of a custard. Well, I've tried making a custard and mixing it into whipped cream...

    Chocolate Truffles with Buttercream Question

    Would the texture of the rolled buttercream change if I added fruit puree? I'm not sure if sees candies uses fresh fruit puree, or if it's dried fruit. I suppose I'll have to do some research. EDIT: Also, I hate using shortening in my cooking... Could I use real butter for the rolled buttercream?

    Chocolate Truffles with Buttercream Question

    I don't think the term "buttercream" for the truffles was the right term to use... Sees uses that term, but when people think of buttercream they think "oh cake frosting". The filling of sees candy is nothing like buttercream. It's a very stiff creamy filling. So stiff that your teeth marks are...

    Chocolate Truffles with Buttercream Question

    The centre of the truffle isn't supposed to have chocolate in it like regular chocolate ganache truffles... That's why I am having such a hard time finding a recipe because I don't want chocolate in the centre. I also didn't want to use preserves or jam, I wanted to use fresh pureed fruit or...

    Bottling Butterscotch Sauce

    Well, the recipe has 1 stick of butter, 2/3 cup corn syrup (which I make myself with corn starch, water, and sugar and it turns out really nice), 1 cup brown sugar, and 1 cup cream... I don't have the option to give it to them fresh because they live in Massachusetts and I live in Oregon...

    Bottling Butterscotch Sauce

    Okay, I'm kind of stupid because I promised someone some homemade bottled butterscotch sauce and I don't know exactly what I need to do... Do I need a pressure cooker? Because I don't have one. Or would it be like jam and I just submerge it into simmering water for 10 - 20 minutes? Any help...

    Loaf of bread deflated :(

    Thank you very much for that information... I appreciate it. I have another loaf of dough that is unbaked in the freezer, but the next time I bake my bread, I will bake all of the loaves and freeze the unused loafs in the freezer. I suppose it's all trial and error and I've learned from my...
