I was just looking through my new CL for June and there is a recipe in it for Profeteriols(sp.?), however that recipe calls for the filling to be frozen yougert. I was wondering if there were any other fillings that I could substitute? T.I.A
I haven't seen the June issue yet, but profiteroles are just a fancy name for cream puffs. You can fill with ice cream, custard, etc. --hard to find a low fat filling, which is probably why they suggested froz. yogurt.
Found these recipes on Epicurious.com
not sure if this is what yoo are looking for but here's the link:
I just made cream puffs (although not this recipe) and I made a fabulous filling! I used an old frosting recipe of my mom's - it's great on angel food cake - and just beat it for less time to make a light fluffy filling for the cream puffs. I used banana cream pudding mix and it was so delicious - I think the filling would even be good in a pie instead of regular pie filling!
Here's the frosting recipe:
Mom's Fluffy Frosting
1 1/2 cups milk (I used skim)
1 small package instant pudding
1 envelope Dream Whip
Mix all ingredients together on low speed of mixer, then increase to high and beat 4-6 minutes until stiff peaks form.
I just beat it for slightly less time, so it was soft and creamy. I served these with a hot fudge sauce on the side, and everyone just filled their own puffs (I also served plain whipped cream as an option, but everyone preferred the banana cream!) and drizzled the chocolate sauce over top. Yummmm!!
I don't really need a low fat filling, just something really wonderful. I found one for chocolate cognac cream, but could I substitute the cognac for Kahula? I can't see how it could be bad but I needed to check with the experts first!
I have made a recipe from epicurious.com and I usually serve them with a very good vanilla ice cream and a bittersweet chocolate sauce. Yummmmmmmm. The great thing about profiteroles is that they are so easy (and can be made ahead of time) but seem so elegant.
I make these a lot for company...great presentation and really easy...I usually fill them with a mixture of vanilla pudding beaten with a package of softened cream cheese...use a pastry bag to pipe filling inside and then dip the tops in chocolate. Refrigerate until ready to use..
Jen...Great idea using banana pudding....I think I will try that with the cream cheese some time...you can never go wrong with chocolate and bananas
