I have a pie crust cooling in the fridge right now and, shortly, I’ll fill that pie crust with strawberries and brown sugar and sour cream (I am somewhat suspicious of this) and then I’ll bake it.
Remember how scared I was of making a pie? I am so totally over that, now!
Yesterday I decided to try my hand at making eclairs using this recipe. I used a mocha frosting recipe for the top (because Coffee really likes that) and, after I added the flour and mixed it up, I put the entire thing into my stand mixer before adding the eggs. Otherwise, I just followed the instructions – using piping tips attached to ziploc bags for the pastry and for the filling.
SO EASY! It was like magic watching them puff up. Coffee said they were the best eclairs he’s ever had and Maymo enjoyed them very, very much. They really DO seem super-duper fancy and they really ARE super-duper easy to make.
What’s next? What ridiculous thing should I attempt to make?
