We pipe a ring of pâte à choux, bake it till golden brown, then slice it and fill it with vanilla bean pastry cream, whipped cream, and fresh strawberries. This is a traditional French dessert that was originally created to celebrate a bicycle race (shaped like a bicycle wheel) in France that ran from the capital city of Paris, west to the port town of Brest in Brittany on France’s Atlantic coast, and then back to Paris. The first time Toni, one of our partners at Zingerman’s Mail Order, tasted this she said, “It’s plate lickin’ good.” Available in mini, individual, and large sizes. The mini version is an enclosed cream puff that’s filled from the bottom with our vanilla bean pastry cream.
