June 17, 2008 – Peppermint Crem Puff Ring, recipe found on pages 290-292 of BFMHTY. This is my final recipe from the Baking From My Home To Yours bake along.
I have no fear of choux pastry. I made 20 croquembouche for a friend wedding a couple of years ago. After that I was a little choux-ed out I think.
Anyway, I am making the desserts for another friends birthday party which is coming up soon. I had made her rum custard filled cream puffs a few years ago and they are still remembered fondly. However this time out of the 25 or so guests coming 4 are gluten intolerant. Could I tweak the recipe to work for gluten free. Well the puffy little darlings above are gluten free baby!
I did quite a bit of reading on how to best go about the substitution. Not sure how successful I would be I made a half batch. I used White Wings GF flour and 1 extra egg white (for the half batch that was perfect).
To keep with the theme I filled them with Jeni’s Spendid Ice Cream recipe for Savanah Buttermint. Yum Yum. What a nice way to finish up!
