Three Words for You

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!
