air? Check! Nails? Check! Makeup? Check and check! Finally I’m ready to go! Oh, look – chouquettes! Mmmm…I’ll just have one! Darn! Now I have to do my lipstick again…but it was worth it!”
Remember my post about [pat a ʃu]? And all those little yummy snacks you can make? Well, there is another one, a bit neglected choux pastry treat – called chouquette [ʃuket], meaning little choux! Chouquettes are small dollops of choux pastry, sprinkled with pearl sugar before baking, which gives them lovely, sweet crunch.
In France, chouquettes are usually nibbled in the afternoon, but in any other part of the world, you can – and pardon my French – crunch and munch all day long! And happiness doesn’t stop there – you don’t even have to bake them yourself! Just walk in any pâtisserie, and right there, on the counter you will probably spot a heap of these little tidbits, just waiting for you to munch them from the paper sack.
However, if you can’t buy chouquettes in your neighborhood, do not despair, I have a great, easy-to-make-at-home recipe for you right here!
Well, what do you think about this post?
I read and really appreciate all the comments, even though I do not always have the time to respond to each one. So – keep me in the loop and try to create some sweetness every day because – Sweetness is happiness!!
