I finished our first baking practical today. Making baguettes, chocolate chip cookies and cheesy biscuits. How did I do? My baguettes were shaped and browned perfectly. The dough was a little "tight" as I was told, usually due to over working the dough. The cookies tasted great. Just a bit over done. The biscuits were perfect. Flaky, good color and shape. Plus they tasted fantastic.
Even better, tomorrow we get to make pate a choux (pot a shoo). Something I always wanted to know how to make, even though I didn't know that's what they were called. If you know what pate a choux is, good for you! If you are like me and didn't or don't have a clue, then I have three words to say to you;
Cream Puffs & Eclairs!
