These cream puffs have a surprise: a tiny topper of tart dough, which adds a contrast in texture and an additional layer of rich flavor.

    Great recipe! I used the Pate a choux recipe on this website to make these and they turned out great without the added tart dough! So yummy with the pastry cream from the Raspberry Napoleans :D

    grandia102, and to all others who are wondering, pate a choux is french for pastry dough. pate means pastry, choux means cabbage but it refers to how pastry dough has many layers like a cabbage.

    I agree with Honeydew. As long as something has a cream attached to it I'm sold. I cannot wait to make these!

    pate a choux is the actual shell of all cream puffs, that's why you have to make it. the tart dough was the "extra," not the pate a choux.

    I made this and It didn't work. After looking up other cream puff recipy's I went back to this one and the amounts were wrong. I still don't know why I had to make the pate choux. Good luck to anyone that makes this work because I couldn't.
