ream puff is one of the most known desserts ever. It is a ball of baked choux pastry, cut and filled with or . These little sweet snacks are not difficult to make, especially if you already know . However, that won’t be enough for today’s recipe. Today, we are making craquelin! Craquelin means cracker in French, so choux craquelin would be crackly choux. The way to get crunchy choux is to make craquelin topping – a mixture of butter, brown sugar, and flour. It is necessary to roll it thinly and put a piece of the mixture on each cream puff just before baking them.
Craquelin gives texture, nice appearance, and sweetness to your cream puffs, so no wonder it is getting more popular in the world of choux lovers. I like to put it on the éclairs, too! One more interesting thing, you can put some food coloring into your craquelin and make colored cream puffs! Now isn’t that great idea for children’s birthday parties?
