As noted I was in charge of the dessert for the High Holiday, and the Hubs suggested/requested Cream Puffs with an Irish whipped cream. Soooooooooo… Friday night I got home from work and took a little nap. When I woke up an hour later, I was refreshed enough to make a batch of cream puff shells
I also made another brown bread, assembled my “by now almost famous Irish Pub skewers”, and as seen above, whipped up a quick Guinness based chocolate sauce for the pastry. Cocoa powder, good quality chocolate broken into small pieces, sugar, vanilla and tiny bit of salt and about 1/2 a cup of Guinness. Just before serving I whipped some heavy cream with confectioner sugar and 2 tbsp of Baileys Irish Cream liqueur. We filled the shells with ice cream and then topped them with chocolate and whipped cream. My nephew, who runs about 6 miles a day, had the luxury of consuming two. Lucky boy….
